Viscoelastic Properties of Crystals

Williams, Stephen R.; Evans, Denis J.


We examine the question of whether fluids and crystals are differentiated on the basis of their zero frequency shear moduli or their limiting zero frequency shear viscosity. We show that while fluids, in contrast with crystals, do have a zero value for their shear modulus, in contradiction to a widespread presumption, a crystal does not have an infinite or exceedingly large value for its limiting zero frequency shear viscosity. In fact, while the limiting shear viscosity of a crystal is...[Show more]
