Engineering Viscoelasticity

Authors: Gutierrez-Lemini, Danton

  • Facilitates conceptual understanding by progressing in each chapter from elementary to challenging material
  • Examines in detail both differential and integral constitutive equations, devoting full chapters to each type and using both forms in applications throughout the book
  • Presents variational principles and energy theorems from a practical point of view, using these to develop computational tools such as the viscoelastic equivalent of the Unit-Load and the Unit-Displacement theorems
  • Provides more than 50 examples, solved in detail, and detailed solution guides (hints) to all given problems
  • Features solutions manual, code segments to curve-fit WLF time-temperature shift and Dirichlet-Prony functions, and 90 illustrations

About this Textbook

Engineering Viscoelasticity covers all aspects of the thermo- mechanical response of viscoelastic substances that a practitioner in the field of viscoelasticity would need to design experiments, interpret test data, develop stress-strain models, perform stress analyses, design structural components, and carry out research work. The material in each chapter is developed from the elementary to the esoteric, providing the background in mathematics and mechanics that are central to understanding the subject matter being presented. This book also examines how viscoelastic materials respond to the application of loads, and provides practical guidelines to use them in the design of commercial, military and industrial applications.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book is written to serve as a textbook on viscoelasticity for senior undergraduate and graduate students. … There are several interesting features of the book that enhance its utility not only as a textbook, but also as a preliminary research treatise on the subject. … The reviewer enjoyed reading the book, and he believes that it will serve the students/researchers interested in the area of viscoelasticity well.” (Vinod K. Arya, zbMATH, Vol. 1294, 2014)
