He described the difference between the creep under constant environmental conditions and mechanosorptive creep.
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.
The model for creep under uniaxial tension can be extended to yield expressions relating strains to creep stresses under a multiaxial stress state.
Standard test method for resistance to creep under static loading for structural wood laminating adhesives used under exterior exposure conditions.
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.

One of the major problems with these pipes is creep under their service pressures.
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.
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).
These flours are creep-resistant and do not demonstrate noticeable creep under pressures and temperatures used in investment casting.
