Abstract: Abstract The principal features of models of structural relaxation in the glassy state were reviewed. The concepts of fictive temperature as the structural parameter and nonexponentiality and nonlinearity of structural relaxations were described. Various expressions for the structural relaxation time were presented and compared. One particular model was selected and utilized in a parametric optimization study of structural relaxation. Model predictions were checked against experimental results obtained by vol…
