Abstract

Linear viscoelasticity theory is applied to the fatigue problem of solids sensitive to the deformation rate. A series of experiments have been performed to investigate the range of applicability in whch the theory is valid and to examine the accuracy of the theory. The experimental results are compared with an existing theory.
