10.3 Rheological Models
In this section, a number of one-dimensional linear viscoelastic models are discussed.
10.3.1
Mechanical (rheological) models
The word viscoelastic is derived from the words "viscous" + "elastic"; a viscoelastic

Most materials tend to expand iftheir temperature rises and, to a first approximation,
the expansion is proportional to the temperature change. If the expansion is unre-
