Several aspects of the experimental procedure used in our laboratory for the study of high-temperature viscoelastic relaxation in geological and ceramic materials have been critically examined and refined. Most importantly, we have newly quantified a contribution to the torsional compliance of the specimen assembly from the interfaces between the metal foil and alumina torsion rod at each end of the specimen. We demonstrate that this extraneous contribution to the apparent compliance of the...[Show more]
