Hello, I'm designing an ABS plastic part that's going to experience a constant load (see image link below). I'm concerned that the surface under load will creep over time. If this surface deflects too much or breaks, then this could cause failure of the product. I can't seem to find creep properties for ABS. Does anyone know if this approach is flawed, or a way to estimate the long duration deflection and stress without doing a DMA? I would really appreciate any help here. Thanks!
