Passive control has been used to reduce vibration amplitudes. This is the case of composite structures with elastic layers and viscoelastic core. These structures, which are called by sandwich, present a high damping ratio and simple application. In order to design sandwich structures, many aspects ranging from computer modeling to laboratory tests should be considered. In this paper, an approach that involves a theoretical/numerical Golla- Hughes-McTavish (GHM) based model is presented. The GHM method is applied to modeling viscoelastic materials and, consequently, to aid the design of sandwich structures. In that way, starting from dynamic properties of a viscoelastic material, numerical models are used to evaluate the behavior of sandwich structures, showing the advantages and disadvantages of the presented methodology. Comparisons with uncontrolled structures are also presented, showing the dissipative characteristics of this type of passive control.
