Relaxation and retardation time for polymeric liquids

  1. May 24, 2009 #1
    Hi all, I am wondering what the typical values of relaxation and retardation time for different real materials?
    I know these times depend on quite a number of things.
    But I just want to have a sense of the ratio of the two time scales for different real materials like blood, cervical mucus and other materials...

    Do you have some good references for these data? I am kind of confused when I search online about it.

    What do you mean by relaxation time and retardation time?
