At the present time, mechanical vibration is undesirable in many cases. Therefore it is necessary to minimize unwanted vibrations in any appropriate manner. This paper is focused on a study of factors influencing vibration damping properties that were investigated using multilayer composite structures. Frequency dependencies of the displacement transmissibility over a frequency range of 2-1500 Hz were determined by the method of forced oscillations. It was found in this study that the vibration

It was also observed that a superior ability to damp mechanical vibration leads to a shift of the first resonance frequency peak position to lower excitation frequencies.
