Mathematical models of finite deformation of a rolling viscoelastic cylinder in contact with a rough foundation are developed in preparation for a general model for rolling tires. Variational principles and finite element models are derived. Numerical results are obtained for a variety of cases, including that of a pure elastic rubber cylinder, a viscoelastic cylinder, the development of standing waves, and frictional effects.
