Viscoelastic Solids of Exponential Type. I. Minimal Representations and Controllability
Certain results about state–space representation, minimality and controllability of a linear viscoelastic solid element of exponential type (VSET) are presented. In particular, we prove that VSET can be viewed as materials with finite memory. This is a first part of a plan which will be continued in a next paper, by studying free energies, stability and attractors in viscoelasticity of exponential type.
