Transverse vibration of an axially moving viscoelastic sandwich beam is investigated in this paper. Based on the Kelvin constitutive equation, transverse controlling equation is established. First of all, the multiple scales method is applied to obtained steady-state response. Elimination of scales terms will give us the amplitude of vibrations. Additionally, the stability conditions of trivial and non-trivial solutions are analyzed using Routh-Hurwitz criterion. Eventually, numerical results are obtained to show the thickness of core layer, mean velocity, the amplitude of fluctuation effects on natural frequencies and response curves.
