What is Material Creep and the Mechanical Properties of Lead Creep?

Material creep is defined as the continuing deformation of a metal under a steady load. Other factors affect the creep of materials including temperature and alloy under stress. Lead is such a soft metal that creep affects the metal more than other harder metals such as steel, aluminum or brass. Lead is soft enough that it will creep under its own weight in time. Any additional load on the...
