Phenomenological theories of creep have to take account of the flow of materials in four stages, which are generally designated in the following manner:
  1. 1.

    An immediate extension, which is elastic.

  2. 2.

    A stage during which the rate of flow decreases, which is transient.

  3. 3.

    A stage during which it is constant, called stationary.

  4. 4.

    A final stage in which it accelerates, called rupture.
