dc.description.abstract Various models of viscoelasticity exist based on continuum mechanics. In this work a statistical mechanical approach is taken to derive a new isotropic, hyperelastic, viscoelastic, incompressible constitutive equation for polymers. The result has been achieved by generating a novel physics for the microscopic behaviour of polymers. A vocabulary has been created to facilitate the physics. A new differential equation describing polymer behaviour is derived based on the mathematical description of the physics. en_ZA
