Analytical solutions to a network of standard linear solids

Analytical solutions to a network of standard linear solids Various viscoelastic models, such as the standard linear solid, Maxwell model, and Kelvin–Voigt model, are frequently used to describe the behavior of biological materials from single cells to tissues. These models are expressed mathematically as simple differential equations, called constitutive equations, which relate the applied force (stress) to the resulting deformation (strain) of the material. Networks of these models, representing materials with heterogeneous mechanical properties, are described by systems of constitutive equations. We prove that the eigenvalues associated with such systems are all nonpositive real numbers, find bounds for them, and indicate how they can be estimated quickly and accurately. We then give formulas for the analytical solutions of the system of equations. Journal of Engineering Mathematics Springer Journals
