Based on a state variable theory proposed by Onat some discriminating creep tests of stainless steel have been designed and carried out at elevated temperature conditions. Quantitative correlations of the results are sought with predictions from a physical theory for recovery creep proposed by Lagneborg. The findings are utilized to interpret the behavior of creeping members when subjected to a rapid increase in the rate of straining. Different approaches toward generalization of physical one-dimensional creep laws to multiaxial stress states are discussed. A tentative constitutive equation applicable to the solution of general boundary value problems is proposed.
