This investigation was initiated to study the creep characteristics of a simple, relatively pure, material at constant stress as compared to that tested at constant load. Tin was selected for the investigation. A series of creep tests were run to rupture at constant stress and constant load. The test variables were adjusted in these tests so that time to rupture varied from approximately 300 minutes to 33500 minutes (5 hours to 558 hours) at room temperature, and from 40 minutes to 2500 (0.67 hours to 41.7 hours) at 200 degrees F.
