Abstract : A derivation is given of a particular form of the isothermal nonlinear stress constitutive relation for materials with fading memory. This particular derivation results in a form for the constitutive relations that is well suited for application in solving boundary-value problems. The resulting forms are applied to obtain the exact solution for the torsion of a right circular isotropic viscoelastic cylinder. Several effects due to the nonlinearity of the problem are discussed.
