This paper is concerned with long-time dynamics of laminated beams modeled from the well established Timoshenko system. Of particular interest is a model of two-layered beam proposed by Hansen and Spies which describes the slip effect produced by a thin adhesive layer uniting the structure. In a more general setting, involving a nonlinear foundation, we establish the existence of smooth finite dimensional global attractors for the corresponding solution semigroup.
