Abstract: We study the numerical approximation of a certain Volterra integro-differential equation in Hilbert space which arises in the linear theory of isotropic viscoelastic rods and plates. The equation is discretized in time using a method based on the trapezoidal rule: while the time derivative is approximated by the trapezoidal rule in a two-step method, a convolution quadrature rule, constructed again from the trapezoidal rule, is used to approximate the integral term. The resulting scheme is shown to be convergence in the $l_{t}^{1}(0,\infty ;H)\bigcap l_{t}^{\infty }(0,\infty ; H)$ norm.
