Starting with the real metallic potentials constructed from a full non-local model pseudopotential theory, the author carries out two computer simulation studies for yttrium and zirconium monatomic glasses. By comparing the Wendt-Abraham parameter, RLG, at the liquid-glass transition point obtained with previous results for chromium and various other, seemingly different monatomic glasses such as the Lennard-Jones, the soft core, etc., the author finds that the Wendt-Abraham criterion satisfies RLG=0.1+or-0. 02 and may well be a universal constant. The physical indication of this R LG value is interpreted and various ubiquitous structural features related to liquid-glass transition are also presented.
