Damping of multi-layer composites

We recently published two papers that present an optimization method to design multi-layer composites with damping properties. The method consists in adding elastomeric layers in the composite. In this way, a multi-criteria optimization tool has been developed to determine the best geometrical and material properties of the composite: position of the elastomeric layers, layers thickness, ...

Problem of extracting structural damping

Hello;
I have a problem of extracting structural damping coefficient of a sandwich plate type steel / polymer / steel. I have already entered the shear modulus of the polymer in ABAQUS G = G0 (iw) / (1 + iw) With the: *viscoelastic, frequency=TABULAR

I do not know if my approach is right?
My inp file has this form:

 

*NODE, NSET=ALLNODES, SYSTEM=R
