Abstract

The identification of the mechanical parameters of the viscoelastic core layer is of great significance for the modeling and damping design of the constrained layer damping (CLD) composite structure. In this study, based on the measured frequency vibration response of a CLD plate, an inverse approach was developed to identify the aforementioned parameters. Then, on the basis of considering both the viscoelastic material damping and the remaining equivalent viscous damping, the equation of motion of the CLD plate under base excitation was established and a method to obtain the vibration response was also presented. Further, a matching calculation based on sensitivity was proposed, to achieve the identification of the mechanical parameters. Finally, a CLD aluminum plate with a ZN_1 viscoelastic core layer was chosen to demonstrate the proposed method. In addition, the identification results were also introduced into the vibration response analysis and the rationality of the identified parameters were verified by comparing the vibration responses obtained by theoretical calculations and the experiment.
