Abstract : Constitutive equations are presented for nonlinear viscoelastic materials under variable stress loading and are interpreted in terms of nonlinear viscoelastic models. Analytical solutions are obtained for stress, velocity and strain at the wave front in an impulsively loaded semi-infinite rod of material described by these nonlinear constitutive equations.
