Numerical Methods and Modeling
Wiley InterScience Backfile Collection 1832-2000
A parameter identification procedure for viscoelastic materials is presented, which is formulated based on the elastic-viscoelastic correspondence principle. The proposed method is developed by using Newton's iteration scheme, the method of least squares and the one-dimensional minimization method. The boundary element discretization and the numerical inversion of the Laplace transform are used for linear viscoelastic analysis. Two numerical examples are included to demonstrate the validity of the method. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
