The creep and creep rupture behavior of a resin-bonded particulate composite in a water environment was determined. The material exhibits power law creep behavior in which the steady state creep rate is a power function of the applied initial elastic stress. The creep exponent was found to be 4.8. The creep rupture behavior can be explained using a modified Monkman-Grant relationship where the time to failure times the creep rate is a constant.
