Viscoelastic Solids covers the mathematical theory of viscoelasticity and physical insights, causal mechanisms, and practical applications.

Viscoelastic Solids also demonstrates the use of viscoelasticity for diverse applications, such as earplugs, gaskets, computer disks, satellite stability, medical diagnosis, injury prevention, vibration abatement, tire performance, sports, spacecraft explosions, and music.


"This book presents this theory as well as the physical insights, causal mechanisms, and practical application. It makes the subject accessible and useful for a variety of disciplines in engineering and experimental physical science."

-LaDoc STI (Science, Technology & Industry), Bulletin of the Librairie Lavoisier ( Lavoisier Bookstore), France

"This readable book can be used for self-study or in classroom situations…Recommended.'

- R.G. Jeffers, University of Connecticut in CHOICE, September 1999
