creep Topic


Definition: time-dependent deformation due to sustained load.- ACI Concrete Terminology

Creep is indicated when strain in a solid increases with time while the stress producing the strain is kept constant. In more practical terms, creep is the increased strain or deformation of a structural element under a constant load. Depending on the construction material, structural design, and service conditions, creep can result in significant displacements in a structure. Severe creep strains can result in serviceability problems, stress redistribution, prestress loss, and even failure of structural elements.
