In this study, the effects of the location of the rubber between composite layers which is located to supply damping on the vibration frequency of laminated composite circular plates having different fiber directions are investigated by using the finite element method. The laminated composite circular plate having free outer edge is manufatured as having a central hole. Hybrid composite circular plate is clamped at the inner edge and subjected to transverse impuls load on a location at the outer edge. The best location of the rubber layer in terms of the damping capability are determined by using finite element analysis.
