Dynamic transient responses of plates with viscoelastic free damping layers are studied in order to evaluate free layer damping treatment performances. The effects of forcing frequencies and temperatures on free-layer viscoelastic damping treatment of plates are investigated analytically. Young’s modulus ratio of structures to viscoelastic damping materials and the damping layer thickness effects on the damping ability are also explored.
