Abstract : Analytical results for complex moduli of uniaxially fiber reinforced materials made of viscoelastic matrix and elastic fibers are reviewed A general method is established to predict complex moduli and loss tangents of viscoelastic laminates made of uniaxially reinforced laminae Application of results is demonstrated by two examples of analysis of damping of structural vibrations: Attenuation of vibrations in uniaxially reinforced Timoshenko beam and torsional vibrations of laminated cylinder.
