The evolution of specific heat near the glass transition temperature, T[sub g], of a Zr[sub 55]Al[sub 10]Ni[sub 5]Cu[sub 30] glassy alloy subjected to different degrees of non-Newtonian flow conditions was investigated. At conditions in which non-Newtonian flow begins, a gradual exothermic relaxation near T[sub g] was observed. This is attributed to the change in configuration of the long-range liquid structure of the alloy. At conditions in which a high degree of non-Newtonian flow is favored, the alloy exhibits both high-temperature and low-temperature relaxation due to a change in local short-range order. The enthalpy of relaxation is found to scale as the logarithm of the normalized viscosity and is interpreted in terms of the free volume model of viscous flow. The decrease in viscosity in the non-Newtonian flow region is associated with a highly disordered structure and induced free volume. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
