Abstract: Abstract Structural parts made of plastics are usually tested under creep loading conditions, i.e., the stress is applied almost suddenly and then kept constant, while defomation is measured. In practice, however it happens that such a structural part is loaded by an elastic member (for example, by a spring). In this case, the acting force is no longer constant; it decreases in the course of time, while the deformation of the specimen increases (and, obviously, that of the spring decreases). The present paper…
