A mechanics perspective on the mathematics of viscoelasticity and a materials view of the physical mechanisms behind the polymer deformation processes, are provided by this book. The book fills a critical niche. Clearly written and well-organized, the volume includes an introduction to and mathematical description of the basic materials science of polymers, time-temperature-frequency dependence, and unique deformation mechanisms of polymers.to define viscoelastic behavior only for models with no free damper or flow term. ... A Note on Realistic Creep and Relaxation Testing The testing of polymers requires unique understanding of the viscoelastic nature ... Several questions may arise one ... One answer is for the load to be applied as ramp input as shown in Fig.
