Abstract: In this work we consider some expressions for the free energy, already proposed and studied for viscoelastic solids, and adapt them to incompressible viscoelastic fluids. The internal dissipation corresponding to each of these various forms of the free energy is also evaluated. In particular, the form of the minimum free energy for the discrete spectrum model is also considered in order to show its equivalence to some classical free energies.
