In this work, a comprehensive vibrational behavior analysis is performed on anti-symmetric laminated composite plates resting on visco-elastic foundations undergoing thermal effects. Here, the governing equations of motion are developed through Hamilton's principle and Reddy's plate theory as higher-order shear deformation theory (HSDT) is employed to capture high accuracy. Also, the generalized differential quadrature method (GDQM) is used to predict the vibration response and the natural frequencies. The effects of temperature change, Winkler-Pasternak and damping coefficients for the elastic foundation, the elastic ratio, the arrangement of different anti-symmetric laminates, and the aspect and slenderness ratios are observed and discussed in detail. The results are extracted for fully clamped boundary conditions and the effects of other boundary conditions are also illustrated.
