This work bridges the gaps between mechanical spectroscopy, internal friction, relaxation phenomena in solids and the spectroscopic approach to the dissipation of mechanical energy in solids. Part I recalls the basic concepts of mechanical spectroscopy and provides a brief introduction as to how to determine precisely the logarithmic decrement in mechanical loss experiments. The history of the development of internal friction and mechanical spectroscopy. Part II illustrates the various applications of mechanical spectroscopy in the study of metals and alloys, quasicrystals, glasses, polymers, carbon nanotubes, thin films, thin-layer materials, conductors, composites, etc. Part III covers a range of other magnetic, dielectric, mechanical and light-induced relaxation phenomena. The papers of part IV cover other relaxation phenomena, experimental techniques and computer modelling, and direct or indirect comparisons of mechanical spectrosciopy and other spectroscopic techniques are made.
