Abstract. The classical model of viscoelastic body is reconsidered. As well known the deformation response of a material is termed viscoelastic when it does not depend only on the status of the material in the considered time, but also on its deformation history. Furthermore, the system is dissipative: such dissipative nature induce the use of viscoelastic materials in devising anti-seismic dissipators. Aiming to model new and innovative materials different forms of the relaxation modulus which characterises the response of the material are considered. Cases of a non-classical relaxation modulus are studied. Thus, a relaxation modulus which may be unbounded or less regular or modified to describe a material whose mechanical response is changed when the material with time, this phenomenon is usually termed ”aging” are investigated. Finally, the viscoelastic response can be controlled on devising magneto-viscoelastic materials via injection of micro or nano particles magnetically sensible.
