Viscoelastic Response in Shear

Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 7)


In the classical linearized theory of elasticity, the stress in a sheared body is taken to be proportional to the amount of shear. The Navier-Stokes theory of viscosity takes the shearing stress to be proportional to the rate of shear. In most materials, under appropriate circumstances effects of both elasticity and viscosity are noticeable. If these effects are not further complicated by behavior that is unlike either elasticity or viscosity, we call the material viscoelastic.
