In a previous paper  displacement and deformation bounds were derived for a body composed of a creeping/plastic material. In this paper, plastic limit state solutions are used in conjunction with these theorems to compute displacement and deformation bounds for some simple redundant structures. In this way, plastic design calculations may be used directly to estimate creep deformations.
