This paper deals with isotropic micropolar viscoelastic materials.
It can be said that that kind of materials have two internal structures: the
macrostructure, where the elasticity effects are noticed, and the microstructure,
where the polarity of the material points allows them to rotate. We introduce,
step by step, dissipation mechanisms in both structures, obtain the corresponding
system of equations and determine the behavior of its solutions with respect the
