AbstractA new numerical technique is described by which the process of creep bending under transient heating conditions can be predicted. It utilizes a convenient creep model, proposed by Dorn and expanded by this author. The computer simulation of the behavior of three protected steel beams during standard fire tests is discussed. The close agreement between the experimental and computed midspan deflection histories is regarded as the proof for the accuracy of the technique as well as of the creep model employed.
