Real solids are not incompressible, although many viscoelastic materials which undergo large deformations show only small changes in volume under ordinary loading conditions. This paper is concerned with a pressurized isotropic viscoelastic hollow cylinder bonded to an elastic casing in which, during a finite deformation, the dilatational change in any element of the cylinder is a small quantity. The analysis is based in part upon the theory of small deformations superposed on finite deformations. Numerical calculations are evaluated by using finite-difference techniques and assuming particular forms of kernel functions in the stress-strain relation. The results for compressible and incompressible materials are compared.
