Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade
(World Scientific, 2006)
We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ...
A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids
(World Scientific, 2008)
We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
