The stress exponent, n, which is the slope in a log σ-log (d/ε/dt) curve is about 3 in the intermediate stress range (region M) in the steady state deformation characteristics at high temperature in a solid solution hardened alloy. In the higher stress range (region H) and lower stress range (region L), however, the stress exponents are larger than those in region M. In this paper, the upper transition stress (σU) between regions M and H and the lower transition stress (σL) between regions M and L for f.c.c. Al-Mg and b.c.c. Fe-Mo alloys are calculated using the flow stress predicting method and compared with the experimental results. It is found that the predicted transition stress σU or σL almost agree with the experimental one. The flow stress prediction method based on the solute atmosphere drag mechanism should be applied on the stress range from σL to σU.
