The effective stiffness theory which represents a layered composite as a higher order continnum with microstructure is employed to describe the linear as well as the non-linear dynamic response of a laminated plate. The plate is subjeced to normal time-dependent tractions in the direction of the layering and both small and large deformations are considered. For the case of infinitesimal deformations the results obtained are compared with those based on the complete theory of elasticity. The coupled non-linear hyperbolic differential equations which govern the response of the plate under large deformations are solved and the results are contrasted with those of the linear plate.
