The integral- type creep problem is converted to a sequence of elasticity problems with initial strains. A fourth- order method of time integration is set up and applied to an orthotropic layered plate, or a plate reinforced by an orthotropic system of bars or fibers. Applying a method for elastic problems with initial strains, it is shown how the inelastic strains in a layered plate can be replaced by an equivalent lateral distributed load. The method was verified by means of a numerical example of a rectangular plate.
