Materials follow a creep behavior under constant loading where the global strain rate first slows down and then accelerates. Material heterogeneities however introduce variations inside samples and the local strain rates vary significantly from each other and the global strain rates. We predict the failure of heterogeneous 2D paper samples using the universal features of the creep curve and show the local nature of the failure sites with image analysis.
