Creep of steel Fe-0.6%O produced by the method of powder metallurgy has been studied in a temperature range of 550-700°C at flow stresses from 100 to 400 MPa. It has been shown that the creep of the material is characterized by high values of the apparent activation energy for deformation, which considerably exceeds the value of the activation energy for self-diffusion in α iron, and by high values of the stress exponent in the power law of creep. An analysis of the deformation behavior of the alloy showed that there are observed high threshold stresses as a result of retardation of moving dislocations by small incoherent particles of oxides. Taking into account the threshold stresses and the temperature dependence of the shear modulus, it has been established that the deformation behavior of the powder material is described by a power law of creep. The true values of the stress exponent were found to be approximately 8, and the values of the true activation energy for deformation, to be close to the activation energy for bulk (at T = 700°C) and pipe (at T = 550-650°C) self-diffusion.
