The formulation for large deformations of an axisymmetric nonlinear plane viscoelastic membrane is developed. The solutions from the formulation for both creep and relaxation of a circular membrane are presented. An experiment that demonstrates the relaxation phenomenon was performed, and the experimental data are used to determine the constitutive equation of an elastomer.
