A mixed parameter formulation with applications to linear viscoelasticity

Erwin Hernández, Felipe Lepe, Jesus Vellojin

In this work we propose and analyze an abstract parameter dependent model written as a mixed variational formulation based on Volterra integrals of second kind. For the analysis, we consider a suitable adaptation to the classic mixed theory in the Volterra equations setting, and prove the well posedness of the resulting mixed viscoelastic formulation. Error estimates are derived, using the available results for Volterra equations, where all the estimates are independent of the perturbation parameter. We consider an application of the developed theory in a viscoelastic Timoshenko beam, and report numerical experiments in order to assess the independence of the perturbation parameter.
