Summary 
This concise introduction to the concepts of viscoelasticity focuses on stress analysis. Three detailed individual sections present examples of stressrelated problems. In addition, it explains procedures for model fitting to measured values of complex modulus or compliance. The text begins with an introduction to the concepts of viscoelasticity. Succeeding chapters explore the foundations of threedimensional linear viscoelasticity and stress analysis. Sinusoidal oscillation problems, quasistatic problems, and dynamic problems receive particular attention. The final chapter examines model fitting to measured values of complex modulus or compliance. Numerous examples and figures illuminate the text
