Equivalence of three- and four-element rheologic bodies

© Bytsan' J.N.

A problem about rheological equivalence of three- and four-elemental rheological bodies is considered. The conditions of rheological equivalence of these bodies which make mutually-synonymous connections between their mechanical parameters are obtained. Analytical connections between relaxational and mechanical parameters are concluded. It is obtained that in rheologically equivalent rheological bodies the reduced elastic and viscous moduls do not coincide and the difference between them depends on proximity of times of relaxation and retardation.
