The photoelastic method is generalized to creep in hereditary aging materials. Optical-creep curves and mechanical-creep or optical-relaxation curves are used to interpret fringe patterns. For materials with constant Poisson’s ratio, it is sufficient to use mechanical- or optical-creep curves for this purpose
