Grade PN-3 polyester resin was tested for creep in uniaxial elongation within the linear range of the stress-strain characteristics and under variable temperature-humidity conditions. The resulting creep test curves are now compared with calculations. The latter are based on the creep law and the creep characteristics which have been derived earlier [1] from tests under steady temperature-humidity conditions. The validity of these calculations is established by a comparison between statistical estimates pertaining to the repeatability of test data and to the accuracy of the description of results obtained in both original and control tests.
