RELAXATION is the lag in the response of a system to change in the forces to which it is subjected.1 It is thus a rather general phenomenon whose existence becomes apparent when its rate is not far from being of the same order of magnitude as that of the change of the applied forces. It may consist, for example, of lag in response to the following conditions: a change of temperature which affects the determination of thermal properties; a change of stress which affects mechanical stretching or… CONTINUE READING
