    For a viscoelastic beam loaded at one end and otherwise traction-free, it is shown that a certain integral measure of the strain in that portion of the beam at a distance greater than or equal to s decays exponentially with increasing s. This is a different integral decay estimate from that obtained previously by Edelstein [2] and leads immediately to a pointwise decay estimate for strains.
