  • 3D viscoelastic analysis

    Hi all,
    I'm working on developing a 3D linear viscoelastic finite element
    model for my term project. The literature i have found to date talk
    about 1D finite element models. These are the books i have referred so
    far : (a)The Finite Element Method by Zienkiewicz (b) Creep Analysis by
    Krauss (c)Viscoelasticity by William Flugge. I have not found any
    journal papers that talk about finite element analysis of a linear
    viscoelastic solid in 3D. And I'm not sure how to extend the 1D models
    to 3D. For eg., what would be the effect of poisson's ratio on the
    stress strain-rate equations.
    I would really appreciate it if
    (a) someone can point me to literature (books/papers) that talks about
    finite element analysis of a 3D (linear) viscoelastic solid OR
    (b) someone has worked out the finite element formulations/mathematical
    equations for a 3D linear viscoelastic solid and is willing to share it
    with me.
    P.S : I have been asked to program the 3D linear viscoelastic finite
    element analysis in C/C++. So I CANNOT use any commercial software.
