  author={Mihai O. Marasteanu and David Albert Anderson},
The linear viscoelastic regime is defined in terms of the constitutive relationship between the stress and the strain. The set of equations that define the fundamental linear viscoelastic material properties in the time and frequency domains and their relationship to one another is based on the validity of the linearity principle. A material must obey two simultaneous conditions to be linear viscoelastic: the homogeneity (also called proportionality) condition and the superposition principle… CONTINUE READING
