The harmonic magneto-electro-elastic vibration of a thin laminated composite was considered. A theoretical model, including shear lag and vibration effects was developed for predicting the magneto-electric (ME) effect in a laminate composite consisting of magnetostrictive and piezoelectric layers. To avoid bending, we assumed that the composite was geometrically symmetric. For finite length symmetrically fabricated laminates, we derived the dynamic strain-stress field and ME coefficients, including shear lag and vibration effects for several boundary conditions. Parametric studies are presented to evaluate the influences of material properties and geometries on the strain distribution and the ME coefficient. Analytical expressions indicate that the shear lag and the vibration frequency strongly influence the strain distribution in the laminates and these effects strongly influence the ME coefficients.
