The passive reduction of vibration in structures by means of viscoelastic materials has been investigated by a number of researchers in the past decades and, starting from the earlier studies, great attention was dedicated to the analysis of beams and plates with various damping treatments. This work presents a comparison of the results obtained by applying four analytical approaches and a finite element model to the problem of determining the complex modal frequencies of simply supported plates containing a constrained damping layer.
