An overview is given on the three types of phase transitions, including first order phase transition, glass transition, and flux melting. In first order phase transition, there always appear two dielectric loss and/or two mechanical dissipation peaks related to domain walls in many martensitic and ferroic materials. With glass transition, the peak at kHz often appears near a freezing temperature. With flux melting, the peak is explained by the melting and viscous motion of flux.
