A procedure for determining regular discrete relaxation spectra from the viscoelastic functions is presented as a generalization of a previously proposed procedure for determining the conditional rheological characteristics in a piecewise-exponential approximation of the experimental creep, relaxation, and σ−ɛ curves. The calculated data are in good agreement with the experimental results.
