    Abstract

    A simple mechanical system for keeping constant applied stress during the course of a creep test is proposed. The system uses the forced movement of load and is especially suitable for compressive creep testing. Verification in practical implementation has shown that the tolerance in the stress constancy is better than ±1.5% up to a strain of 30%.
