The aim of the project is to design and fabricate a Creep Test Apparatus to be mounted and used for experimentation in the material properties lab at An-Najah National University, this will enable future coming student to learn more about creep of different materials by performing range of related experiments. Moreover, this project is considered a very good practical exercise for the project team as they will practice in reality mechanical design and implement different manufacturing processes to build the apparatus and then perform range of experiments to obtain real data and come up with solid results and conclusions.The main output of the project is properly operating lab apparatus to be used by students to perform set of creep tests in the materials properties lab at the Industrial Engineering department of An-Najah National University. We hope access to reasonable results help to address the phenomenon of creep. Chapter one gives an introduction about the entire project, chapter two gives an overview about some constraints and related standards, moreover literature review covered most of topics related to creep phenomena are presented in chapter three, and also chapter four provides a detailed explanations for each part, the design calculations and the used electrical system, after that chapter five gives a detailed explanations about fabrication each part, and assembly process for the creep test apparatus, finally chapter six is present the obtained results from our experiments.
