The partially covered, sandwich-type cantilever with concentrated mass at the free end is studied. The equations of motion for the system modeled via Euler beam theory are derived and the resonant frequency and loss factor of the system are analyzed. The variations of resonance frequency and system loss factor for different geometrical and physical parameters are also discussed. Variation of these two parameters are found to strongly depend on the geometrical and physical properties of the constraining layers and the mass ratio.
