Nonlinear theory of viscoelasticity with symmetrical influence functions

  • 14 Accesses


The characteristic equations of a physically nonlinear viscoelastic medium are investigated. A fairly simple theory of nonlinear viscoelasticity with symmetrical influence functions is constructed. This has potential applications in relation to the determination of the strength of structural elements made of materials with rheonomic properties.
