A frightening and/or disconcerting person, especially one who gives the speaker chills or who induces psychosomatic facial itching
Stop following me, you creep!.
The time-dependent part of strain resulting from stress, that is, the dimensional change caused by the application of load over and above the elastic deformation and with respect to time
A measure of the deformation remaining in a material after a force resulting in elastic deformation has been removed In other words, creep is the opposite of elastic memory; if a material has perfect elastic memory, there will be no creep
the time-dependent permanent deformation that occurs under stress; for most materials it is important only at elevated temperatures
If something creeps in or creeps back, it begins to occur or becomes part of something without people realizing or without them wanting it. Insecurity might creep in An increasing ratio of mistakes, perhaps induced by tiredness, crept into her game. a proposal that crept through unnoticed at the National Council in December
disapproval If you describe someone as a creep, you mean that you dislike them a great deal, especially because they are insincere and flatter people
the amount a line permanently lengthens when pulled Loosely braided line has a lot of creep, tightly braided has less, linear core line has the least If all the lines creep evenly, it's pretty much unnoticeable On ram-air and hybrid kites, the power lines creep more than the brakes, causing the kite to fly sluggishly
grow in such a way as to cover (a building, for example); "ivy grew over the walls of the university buildings"
To have a sensation as of insects creeping on the skin of the body; to crawl; as, the sight made my flesh creep
Dimensional change in a material under physical load over time and instantaneous elastic deformation
The permanent deformation resulting from prolonged application of stress below the elastic limit Due to its vicoelastic nature, a plastic subjected to load for a period of time tends to deform more than it would from the same load released immediately after application, and the degree of this deformation is dependent on the load duration
The permanent deformation of a roofing material or roof system caused by the movement of the roof membrane that results from continuous thermal stress or loading
a pen that is fenced so that young animals can enter but adults cannot a slow longitudinal movement or deformation someone unpleasantly strange or eccentric
A slow rising of the floor of a gallery, occasioned by the pressure of incumbent strata upon the pillars or sides; a gradual movement of mining ground
If someone or something gives you the creeps, they make you feel very nervous or frightened. I always hated that statue. It gave me the creeps
A permanent inelastic deformation in a material due to changes in the material caused by the prolonged application of structural stress
The dimensional change with time of a material under load At room temperature, it is sometimes called cold flow
A time-dependent deformation of a structural member under a sustained constant load
Relatively slow, quiet movement along a fault It is sometimes called "seismic creep" to distinguish it from the slumping of rock or soil on slopes (which is also known as creep), and sometimes called "aseismic creep", since it does not trigger events greater than microearthquakes
If a rate or number creeps up to a higher level, it gradually reaches that level. The inflation rate has been creeping up to 9.5 per cent The average number of students in each class is creeping up from three to four
move slowly; in the case of people or animals with the body near the ground; "The crocodile was crawling along the riverbed"
If something creeps somewhere, it moves very slowly. Mist had crept in again from the sea
The plastic flow of pipe within a system; the permanent set in metal caused by stresses at high temperatures Generally associated with a time rate of deformation
to make someone's flesh creep: see flesh. Slow change in the dimensions of a material from prolonged stress. Most common metals exhibit creep behaviour. In the creep test, loads below those that ordinarily cause plastic flow or fracture are applied to the material, and the deformation over a period of time (creep strain) under constant load is measured, usually with an extensometer or strain gauge. Time to failure is also measured against stress. Once creep strain versus time is plotted, various mathematical techniques are available for extrapolating creep behaviour beyond the test times; thus, designers can use thousand-hour test data, for example, to predict ten-thousand-hour behaviour. See also testing machine
Slow, more or less continuous movement occurring on faults due to ongoing tectonic deformation Faults that are creeping do not tend to have large earthquakes
(1) The deformation occurring with the lapse of time in both cured and uncured polyurethane, in a body under stress in addition to the immediate elastic deformation Some related terms and properties are stress-relaxation, hysteresis, damping, flow, compression set and viscosity See Cold Flow
A brothel or other disreputable or low-class place, especially where patrons are robbed
Took my public-school training in three jails and a plenty of pool-rooms, went to college in a gang of tea-pads, earned my Ph.D. in more creep joints and speakeasies and dancehalls than the law allows.
Increased taxation arising from wage and salary increases pushing taxpayers into higher tax brackets, or further into such brackets, in a progressive taxation system. The wage rises here are those from keeping pace with inflation or similar (not increased skills or better jobs) so a worker merely doing the same thing for the same notional purchasing power is taxed at a higher rate
a condition that results from the constant or excessive watching of porn and is characterised by an inability to get an erection under circumstances that do not involve the watching of pornographic material
The tendency of a project to include more tasks or to implement more systems than originally specified, which often leads to higher than planned project costs and an extension of the initial implementation date
The gradual addition of extra effort or size of deliverables Each addition may be so small that it could be overlooked in terms of its impact on the completion of the project, but the cumulative effect could be considerable
