The classical theories of Linear Elasticity and Newtonian Fluids, notwithstanding trium­ phantly dependent as mathematical constructions, don't appropriately describe the defor­ mation and movement of so much actual fabrics. makes an attempt to represent the behaviour of genuine fabrics less than the motion of exterior forces gave upward push to the technological know-how of Rheology. Early rheological reports remoted the phenomena now labelled as viscoelastic. Weber (1835, 1841), getting to know the behaviour of silk threats less than load, famous an immediate extension, by way of a different extension over an extended time period. On removing of the weight, the unique size was once ultimately recovered. He additionally deduced that the phenomena of pressure leisure and damping of vibrations may still take place. Later investigators confirmed that comparable results will be saw in different fabrics. The German college noted those as "Elastische Nachwirkung" or "the elastic aftereffect" whereas the British university, together with Lord Kelvin, spoke ofthe "viscosityofsolids". The common adoption of the time period "Viscoelasticity", meant to show behaviour combining right­ ties either one of a viscous liquid and an elastic sturdy, is of modern foundation, no longer getting used for instance via Love (1934), notwithstanding Alfrey (1948) makes use of it within the context of polymers. The earliest makes an attempt at mathematically modelling viscoelastic behaviour have been these of Maxwell (1867) (actually within the context of his paintings on gases; he used this version for calculating the viscosity of a fuel) and Meyer (1874).

Even for the very simple inertial problems considered in Chap . 7, it is apparent that there are significant difficulties associated with the retention of inertial terms. 1) to the threedimensional context. 9-11). ijk/(OJ), the properties of which are discussed in Sect. 5, replace the elastic moduli. This immediately suggests that elastic solutions can be modified so that they apply to corresponding viscoelastic problems .

In the non-inertial approximation, an alternative set of equations may be derived for an elastic medium, known as the Beltrami-Michell compatibility equations. These equations are easily generalized to the case of a viscoelastic medium. 17). 25), one obtains the desired equations in terms of the stresses. 19) . 26) reduces identically to the elastic Beltrami-Michell equations . A consequence of this is that if the boundary value problem is of the first kind (purely stress), and the body occupies a simply connected region, then the stress tensor is identical to the elastic form [see Gurtin and Sternberg (1962)].
