Recently, the fiber reinforced composite embedded with visco-elastic layer has received great attention because of its good damping capability. Damping is an important feature for dynamic behaviour of composite structures, which alleviates the resonant vibrations and thus prolongs the service life of structures under fatigue loading or impact. The present paper deals with the dynamic response of a 3D composite structure embedded with visco-elastic layer. The modal analysis, harmonic analysis and transient analysis are carried out respectively. The amplitude of z-displacement of a specific node on the bottom reduces quickly due to the high damping of the visco-elastic layer.
