Solution of a problem concerning the motion of viscoelastic materials


We give a general solution of a problem involving plane-parallel shearing motion of a Maxwell body in a plastometer subject to a quasistatic concentrated interaction. In our solution we employ physicomathematical modelling of the microstructure and creep processes in the distributed mass of viscoelastic materials.
