Abstract : Analytical and numerical solutions are presented for the statistical properties of the stress at the wave front in a suddenly loaded semi-infinite rod of a nonlinear viscoelastic material. The temperature and accordingly the temperature sensitive material parameters are assumed to be random. (Author)
