In this work, a hybrid laminated plate is developed by changing ply orientations and stacking sequences. The hybrid laminated plate is composed of carbon nanotube reinforced composite and fiber reinforced composite layers. Negative Poisson’s ratio (NPR) is obtained for the case of [22F/(22C/−22C)3T/−22F] laminate. A theoretical laminated model considering geometric nonlinearity and shear deformation is presented. Based on a two-step perturbation method, the solutions of the motion equations are obtained to capture the nonlinear frequencies and load–deflection curves. On this basis, the fourth-order Runge–Kutta method is used to obtain the dynamic response of hybrid laminated plates. The presented model is verified by comparing the results obtained analytically and numerically. Several factors such as loading and distribution of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and foundation type are considered in parametric study. Numerical results indicate that the thermal-mechanical behavior of hybrid laminated plates significantly improved by properly adjusting the CNT distribution. In addition, the results reveal that changes in temperature and foundation stiffness have pronounced influence on the nonlinear vibration characteristics of hybrid laminate plates with NPR as compared to those with positive Poisson’s ratio.
