What is it about?

The alternative approach for implementing creep strain revolves around modification of stress-strain curve in a way that creep component governs the time dependent reduction of tangent modulus of elasticity

Why is it important?

This approach is developed in order to expand the capabilities of an implicit-creep stress-strain model obtained on the basis of single heating-rate tests.


The main author wanted to illustrate the differences in modelling when implementing a time-dependent implicit stress-strain model in comparison to a single heating-rate implicit stress-strain model.
