In this paper, a one-dimensional nonlinear modified and extended Voigt model with constant material parameters is formulated to represent mathematically the time deformation behavior of a variety of viscoelastic materials. A binomial law is used as a nonlinear elastic force function. Numerical illustrations performed show that the hyperlogistic-type solution obtained is very useful to reproduce any S-shaped experimental curve.
