        Do Materials Get Tired? Creep

        A materials science and engineering professor, Dr. Chris Muhlstein of Penn State University, explains that materials will deform slowly under the right conditions, when constant force is applied, and that this phenomenon is called creep. He illustrates "strain," an engineering term, with rubber bands, and explains that engineers can calculate creep strain as a function of time.
