Abstract

In order to quantify the temporal effects on the glass transition at relativistic speeds, the Deborah number is analyzed incorporating the Maxwell relation for relaxation time. Using the time dilation coefficient proposed by Einstein for special relativity, the new observation times are calculated, and the corresponding shear modulus is used to determine the shift in the glass transition temperature. The new glass transition temperature is incorporated into the MYEGA expression to estimate the relativistic viscosity curve. B 2 O 3 glass is used as an example to show the impact of relativistic time scales on viscosity and the glass transition.
