Abstract : The problem of a semi-infinite road of rate-dependent material subjected to an axially applied load is considered and an arbitrary number of terms in series expressions are obtained for the velocity, stress and strain distributions in the rod. Several examples are given to illustrate the use of the method of series expansion in comparison with other numerical method. (Author)
