A nonlinear analysis of creep-induced instability phenomena associated with bifurcation and snap-through buckling is presented. The study concerns the response of the viscoelastic materials with fading memory. The obtained solutions afford a consistent examination of the time-dependent critical conditions and post-critical characteristics. The concept of the useful life of structures subjected to creep buckling is discussed.
