This paper derives analytical solutions of the elastic follow-up factor for power-law creeping cruciform plates under bi-axial displacements to investigate the effect of multi-axial stress states on elastic follow-up behaviors. Validity of the proposed solutions is checked against the results from finite element analyses using power-law creep material. Based on proposed solutions, effects of the biaxiality, geometry, Poisson’s ratio and creep exponent on elastic follow-up factors are discussed. Present results show that the elastic follow-up factor for structure with structural discontinuity can be significantly affected by the multi-axial stress states.
