Abstract: In this paper we consider the asymptotic stability of a class of solutions to the mixed initial-boundary value problem in nonlinear thermo-viscoelasticity. The continuum model is a viscoelastic material of rate type with the thermal conduction obeying Fourier's law. The work in this article generalizes in two ways the results obtained by the present authors in a previous paper [1], The results in this present paper are valid for nonisothermal conditions and for a genuinely nonlinear viscous stress.
