In creep buckling analysis, small deflexion approximations generally influence the calculated displacement-time relations and may also result in the prediction of different phenomena from those indicated by exact analyses. Part II examines the nature of these approximations and the effects of using them. As in Part I, much significance is attached to the link between a structure's creep buckling behaviour at constant load and its instantaneous buckling and post-buckling behaviour under varying load. Analyses of simple single degree of freedom models are used for illustration. Some general conclusions are drawn which permit a better understanding of the relationships between the different types of analysis that have been used in previous creep buckling studies.
