Abstract:

This report contains the mathematical development motivated by Part 1 - Experimental which defines materials with permanent memory through the idea of a nondecreasing viscoelastic range whose range is determined by a damage functional. It is shown that the class of material response behavior developed herein contains viscoelasticity and, hence, elasticity, as subclasses within the viscoelastic range defined and discussed. The determination of deformation gradient equivalence classes for a given damage is made explicit. Rehealing effects are excluded in this initial development.
