Usual CAE tools simulate the behavior of composite parts from models considering the structures as being homogenized. Such approach reveals itself not to be effective when the engineer aims at determining the number of plies and the material characteristics of each ply to aim a specific dynamic behavior. To reply to this problem, we developed a multi-scale model that explicitly integrates the different design parameters of the composite structure being considered at different scales: the number of plies, the orthotropic law of each ply and the characteristics of each interface between the plies made by the matrix. This paper is detailing the method that we developed to lead to our multi-scale and parametric model. This method is coupled to an experimental approach that allows specific variables named fractional variables to be identified. These variables add to the detailed representation of the dynamic capacities of the laminated composite beams that led our study. In the case of our composite beams, the effect of damping due to the ply-interface behavior is significant, and consequently we dealt with the viscoelastic response of the laminated composite beam under dynamic load. As a result, the strategy of simulation based on our reduced, viscoelastic and multi-scale beam model is presented: solutions with low computational resources may be obtained.
