Extending the model to include creep under uniaxial compression is considered next.
A comparison of creep tests under tension and compression at ihe same elevated stress (26 MPa) reveals that creep under compression occurs more slowly than under tension.
He described the difference between the creep under constant environmental conditions and mechanosorptive creep.
As for tensile creep and compressive creep under low stress level, water/cement ratio shows significant effect in increasing the total compressive creep while the use of pfa slightly increases the total compressive creep.
The higher compressive creep under low stress compared to that under high stress level may be explained as follows.
These flours are creep-resistant and do not demonstrate noticeable creep under pressures and temperatures used in investment casting.
The second set of tests involved creep under intermediate stresses (stresses different from the ones used for estimating material parameters) and were used for corroboration of the modeling approach for nonlinear creep (dependence of creep compliance on stress).
The viscoelasticity of polymers also manifests into creep under constant stress and creep recovery on removal of stress.
Obviously, factorizability would offer an essential simplification of the description of creep under various conditions.
One of the major problems with these pipes is creep under their service pressures.

This mechanism would also tend to favor the Kelvin model as the decrease in creep under constant stresses would lead to a decrease in compliance with time.
