In the present paper modified modelling techniques are generated for computing dynamic characteristics of laminated composite structures with more accurate results and with relatively small time of computation. A comparison between the traditonal finite element model and the present improved dynamic models is introduced through a case of longitudinal vibration of fixed - free composite structural rod. The results show the efficiency of the present techniques for dynamic modelling of composite structures.
