The classical theories of Linear Elasticity and Newtonian Fluids, although trium­ phantly stylish as mathematical buildings, don't thoroughly describe the defor­ mation and stream of such a lot actual fabrics. makes an attempt to symbolize the behaviour of actual fabrics lower than the motion of exterior forces gave upward thrust to the technological know-how of Rheology. Early rheological reviews remoted the phenomena now labelled as viscoelastic. Weber (1835, 1841), getting to know the behaviour of silk threats below load, famous an immediate extension, by means of one other extension over a protracted time period. On elimination of the burden, the unique size was once ultimately recovered. He additionally deduced that the phenomena of tension rest and damping of vibrations may still take place. Later investigators confirmed that comparable results can be saw in different fabrics. The German college observed those as "Elastische Nachwirkung" or "the elastic aftereffect" whereas the British tuition, together with Lord Kelvin, spoke ofthe "viscosityofsolids". The common adoption of the time period "Viscoelasticity", meant to express behaviour combining right­ ties either one of a viscous liquid and an elastic strong, is of contemporary beginning, no longer getting used for instance by means of Love (1934), although Alfrey (1948) makes use of it within the context of polymers. The earliest makes an attempt at mathematically modelling viscoelastic behaviour have been these of Maxwell (1867) (actually within the context of his paintings on gases; he used this version for calculating the viscosity of a fuel) and Meyer (1874).

The argument is the same as that used in Elasticity Theory. 1) e=e- +le. 2) I) , where G(t), K(t) are the two independent components characterizing shear and volumetric deformation, respectively. The numerical factors are conventional. Note that G(t) here differs from that in Sect. 2 by a factor of 2. The purpose of that and subsequent sections was merely to establish general properties of the function , which are not influenced by the overall factor. We remark that the properties of many viscoelastic materials are very sensitive to volume change.

1) &(w) = ii(w )€(w) , where &(w), €(w) are the FTs of a(t), e(t). 2 b). The subtraction constant G( (0) has been introduced into the integrand for convergence. 1) has the same form as the linear elastic constitutive relations, apart from the frequency dependence of the modulus. This fundamental observation will be extremely important in later chapters . 4b) There is no reason in general to believe that ii2(w) is zero, so that ii (w) must be taken to be a complex quantity. This statement is validated more conclusively, later.
