Creep of concrete

Nature:

Creep of materials is the slow, continuous plastic deformation of a solid under the action of a constant load or mechanical stress. All solids are to some extent subject to creep; in the case of concrete this can lead to the deformation of buildings and constructions.

Broader Problems:
Failure of materials
Aggravates:
Structural failure
