On weak solutions to a viscoelasticity model. (English) Zbl 0719.73014
This paper is concerned with a dynamic theory of viscoelastic materials of integral type. The authors consider a constitutive law where the memory response is linear and the kernel has certain special properties. The existence of global in time weak solutions is proved. First, the authors use the Galerkin method to construct approximate solutions. Then, the method of monotone operators is used to solve the convergence.
