It is shown that the creep buckling of slender or thin-walled structures whose material deforms elastically as well as in consequence of time- hardening creep can be analyzed first as if the deformations were due entirely to steady creep. The results of this analysis can be easily modified to account for time-hardening creep, and this modification does not involve any approximation when the time-hardening creep strain rate is expressed as the product of a function of stress by a function of time.
