The model investigated, exhibits and defines in mathematical expressions all the laws of common mechanical behavior of an inelastic solid. As a result, it excels the more common models discussed in the introduction not only in completeness of behavior, but also in possibilities of application

In a practical sense, it is of interest to note the similarity between the stres·strain curves of the model and those of some aluminum alloys, Duralumin, magnesium and copper• The creep and strain recovery curve of Fig. (20) is in close agreement with that of real metals discussed by Nadai (l5).

This seems to indicate that the model will be useful in giving mathematical equations for the behavior of these metals under different test conditions.
