An exact solution of the problem of the propagation of torsional waves in semiinfinite and finite circular cylinders is obtained within the framework of the linear theory of viscoelasticity. Concrete examples are discussed, and estimates are given for the stresses near the wave front. All the solutions are obtained in series; it is shown that these series converge absolutely for any finite time.
