[1] The use of this material is very popular because it has several advantages such as light, biocompatible, aesthetic, relatively cheap, low water absorption, easy to manipulate, polish and repair, [1,2,4,5] but this material is not yet ideal in fulfilling the mechanical requirements of a denture base because it has a relatively low impact strength, transverse strength, and modulus of elasticity, making it more susceptible to failure during clinical use.

where: J(t,[tau]) = 1/[E.sub.c]([tau]) + C(t, [tau]) is the creep compliance resulted from a unit stress of concrete, E ([tau]) is the modulus of elasticity and specific creep of concrete at age [tau], [t.sub.s] = [t.sub.0] is the time, at which the autogenous shrinkage strain starts developing.
