The problem of a long hollow viscoelastic cylinder, enclosed in an elastic shell and loaded by internal pressure, is considered. Two cases are investigated: 1) the shear and volume relaxation kernels are proportional; 2) the shear and volume creep kernels are proportional. Resolving integral equations with singular kernels of a nondifference type are obtained and a method of solution is proposed. The convergence of the method is proved.
