Abstract.

We present a detailed statistical analysis of the size and temporal occurrence of burst sequences in the creep rupture of a proposed linear viscoelastic fiber bundle model. According to the model, the burst sequences of fiber breaks display a power law asymptotic behavior analogous to that of the static-fracture [Kloster et al., Phys. Rev. E 56, 2615, (1997)]. Moreover, power law asymptotics apply to inter-arrival times between successive bursts with a universal exponent close to unity.
