The problem of finding the response of a viscoelastic annulus in plane strain to step, transverse loads is solved. It is solved by employing Valanis’ method which assumes constant Poisson’s ratio. The resulting displacements are used to calculate the work done by the applied transverse load for various thicknesses of the annuli. A simple spring-dashpot model is then fitted to the work versus time curves so as to provide the logarithmic decrement for design.
