A mathematical model based on time-shift principle is used for predicting creep of concrete at constant and variable temperatures. Previously published experimental creep data for concrete specimens loaded in compression at constant or variable temperatures were used to compare the predicted creep strains with the experimental reults. In both cases good agreement was observed.
