Relaxation Functions

  • Ian M. Hodge
Chapter

Abstract

This Chapter mainly reviews specific (and with one exception empirical) complex relaxation functions and distributions of relaxation times used to analyze experimental relaxation data. The Chapter also summarizes basic relaxation concepts such as Boltzmann superposition and thermorheologucal complexity (temperature dependent relaxation parameters).
