Representation of Linear Viscoelastic Behavior by Ladder Models

  • Nicholas W. Tschoegl


In Sect. 3.5 of we discussed the representation of viscoelastic behavior by seriesparallel models. Because of the orderly arrangement of the elements in these models their respondences are easily determined even if the number of elements is large. Another orderly arrangement is available in the so-called ladder models.*
