In this report the groundwork is laid for the proposed work scope which stressed the need for a greater understanding of the solid mechanics of grains. Particular emphasis will be directed toward the multi-axial behavior of thick walled configurations. The work falls naturally into three areas; (1) analysis procedures, (2) material properties, and (3) failure criteria. As a necessary preliminary to treating specific designs, certain material of general applicability must be developed, collected, and summarized. The following sections therefore deal with a general description of viscoelastic analysis and material representation, discussed by contrast with more conventional engineering analysis. By this means a background is established for the collection of elastic design formulas which are included in the second section of the report.
