Exact solutions and wave interactions for a viscoelastic medium

Natale Manganaro, Carmela Currò

Abstract


A rate-type first order hyperbolic model describing viscoelastic or viscoplastic media is considered. A class of double wave solutions of the governing system at hand  is determined and some boundary value problems of interest in viscoelasticity are solved. Finally an exact description of soliton-like wave interactions is given.

Keywords


Rate-type equations, double wave solutions, nonlinear waves interaction.
