Enter the creep strain and the elastic strain into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Creep Coefficient. 

Creep Coefficient Formula

CC = CS / ES


  • CC is the Creep Coefficient ()
  • CS is the creep strain
  • ES is the elastic strain

To calculate Creep Coefficient, divide the creep strain by the elastic strain.

How to Calculate Creep Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Creep Coefficient.

  1. First, determine the creep strain. 
  2. Next, determine the elastic strain. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CC = CS / ES.
  4. Finally, calculate the Creep Coefficient.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

creep strain = 0.5

elastic strain = 0.6
