1. On the basis of the exponentialsmoothing method, a method is suggested for estimating the probability characteristics (statistical moments) of nonstationary random processes of change in temperature conditions of the surrounding medium.

2. The possibility is shown of the application of the methods of theory of nonstationary random processes to the prediction of creep of polymeric materials which belong to the class of thermal—moisture rheologically simple solids during nonstationary random change in temperature and humidity of the material. The proposed method of prediction has been experimentally confirmed for the example of prolonged (27,000 h) creep of PN-3 polyester resin during simple shear under the climatic conditions of Riga.
