Abstract : A boundary value problem of quasi-static deformation of physically nonlinear viscoelastic solids is discussed in the context of providing a scheme for characterization of material response in a manner compatible with an algorithm for numerical solution of boundary value problems. An illustrative example involving axial deformation of a statistically indeterminate nonlinear viscoelastic rod is included. (Author)
