Abstract : The response to a time-dependent external load of a visco-elastic half-space reinforced by oblique elastic fibers is obtained. The viscoelastic matrix is assumed to be described by any model of viscoelasticity and the fibers are allowed to occupy arbitrary volume within the matrix and to possess any elastic moduli. A NUMERICAL METHOD OF SOLUTION IS PRESENTED TOGETHER WITH ITS STABILITY AND CONVERGENCE AND THE ACCURACY OF THE RESULTS ARE EXAMINED. (Author-PL)
