Editorial Reviews

`...most of the more recent texts on the subject approach viscoelasticity from the point of view of the physicist or materials scientist; complex materials are considered under simple stress and strain regimes. The engineer, of course, is often concerned with complex regimes... Haddad has made a welcome, and...successful attempt to explicate these matters.' Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology
