Materials with Constitutive Equations That Are Local in Time
We now consider the constitutive equations relating to fluids and solids for which memory effects are negligible. This contrasts with subsequent chapters, which are devoted almost entirely to materials with memory. In fact, however, one example included in the discussion, namely viscous fluids, can be visualized as possessing very short-term memory, expressed by the presence of time derivatives of certain field quantities. This is consistent with the general correlation that will arise throughout the present work between memory effects and energy dissipation.
