A method is proposed for estimating structural creep deformation due to histories of cyclic proportional loading. The method applies to structures composed of materials whose creep strain due to constant uniaxial stress is given by an equation of the form

ε(t)/ε0 = {σ/σ0}n{t/t0}m
Knowledge of the form of the creep law for time-varying stress is not required, as use is made of an effective stress obtained from a single cyclic creep test.
