Figure 1. Configuration of the Maxwell fluid branch.

The Maxwell fluid branch, shown in fig. 1, is a component of an elastomeric damper model.


  1. The Maxwell fluid branch is defined by two parameters.
    1. An elastic spring of stiffness constant kv > 0.
    2. A characteristic time, τ = ηv / kv > 0.
  2. It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
