Analytical solutions are presented for two separate modes of deformation of an infinite elastic spherical wedge. In part, these solutions take the form of the stresses on the boundaries of the wedge caused by prescribed surface displacements. Full discussion is given to the means of utilizing these two solutions, along with corresponding tests, to determine the complete mechanical-properties characterization of a linear isotropic viscoelastic solid.
