This paper presents the dynamic behaviour of three-layered, annular plates with a linear viscoelastic core. The annular plate is loaded in plane of facings with variable in time forces acting on the inner or outer plate edges. The analysed plate structure is symmetric and composed of three-layers: thin facings and a thicker, soft core. The core material is considered as linear with viscoelastic properties. Analytical and numerical solution will be presented including the wavy forms of dynamic loss of plate stability. In the analytical and numerical solution, two approximation methods: orthogonalization and finite difference have been applied to obtain the system of differential equations for the analysed problem of dynamic deflections of the examined plate with the viscoelastic core. Additionally, the suitable plate model using the finite element method has been built. The numerical calculations carried out in ABAQUS system show the results which are compatible with those obtained for the analytical and numerical solution. Presented in figures time histories of plate deflections and velocity of deflections as well as buckling forms of the plate model show the dynamic response of the examined plate on time-dependent loads and core material properties.
