Abstract
This paper is concerned with the investigations of viscoelastic material (VEM) effects on active constrained layer (ACL) based structures. Specific interests are on how the VEM parameters will influence the passive damping ability and the active action transmissibility in an ACL configuration. The study has identified the VEM parameter regions that will provide the best active-passive hybrid actions. This research also developed guidelines to synthesize ACL structures that will outperform both the purely passive and active systems.
