scope:

This report provides comparisons of creep-buckling calculations and provides guidance on approximate methods which are feasible for design. This report includes a discussion of the various creep models, presents creep buckling analysis techniques, and provides several comparative example calculations.

The techniques discussed in this report include:

1. Baseline analysis. Finite element creep analysis with different creep models and full non-linear strain-displacement (geometrical) analysis.

2. Critical strain technique. Elastic buckling strain defines the creep buckling strain.

3. Tangent/secant modulus approaches. Combinations of tangent and secant moduli of the isochronous stress-strain curve are used in calculations that reduce to elastic buckling calculations in the elastic case.

4. Use of an isochronous stress-strain curve in a limit/instability analysis of the imperfect structure. An instability (buckling) analysis would be in principle the same as Technique 3, and should generate the same answer. Adding plastic collapse as a failure mode ensures that the yield strength of the structure is not exceeded. This analysis therefore reflects the failure modes which are covered by the baseline technique.
