Analytical solutions of problems which involve creep phenomena and which are of practical interest are at present very limited in number. This paper discusses four specific problems for which solutions have been presented: namely, the problem of the flanged and bolted pipe joint under creep conditions, and the three problems of stress distribution and creep in thick-walled cylinders under internal pressure, in a beam subjected to pure bending, and in a solid circular shaft under torsion. These solutions will illustrate the kind of creep data which the designer desires the experimenter to furnish.
