Analytical solutions for the rotating variable-thickness inhomogeneous, orthotropic, hollow cylinders under plane strain assumption are developed in Part I of this paper. The extensions of these solutions to the viscoelastic case are discussed here. The method of effective moduli and Illyushin's approximation method are used for this purpose. The rotating fiber-reinforced viscoelastic homogeneous isotropic hollow cylinders with uniform thickness are obtained as special cases of the studied problem. Numerical application examples are given for the dimensionless displacement of and stresses in the different cylinders. The influences of time, constitutive parameter and elastic properties on the stresses and displacement are investigated.
