It is shown that the introduction of creep-rupture strain into Monkman-Grant relation modified by DobeÅ¡ and MiliÄka demonstrates only the deviation range of the minimum creep rate from the average creep rate. The apparent activation energy E<sub>c</sub> of creep is below the value of magnesium self-diffusion energy ESD up to 175Â°C. At higher temperatures, E<sub>c</sub> &gt; E<sub>SD</sub>, and creep deformation may be controlled by diffusion processes (dislocation climbing, etc.). The established magnitude of stress exponent n in the power law (the modified Arrhenius rate equation) within the stress range from 20 to 50 MPa is close to the value of n â‰… 3 typical of solid-solution alloys. The increase in n values at higher stresses up to ~ 5 is caused, probably, by stress-induced precipitation of Î²-phase during long-term creep tests.}, number={1}, journal={Journal of Metals, Materials and Minerals}, author={Unigovski, Yakov B.}, year={2017}, month={Apr.} }
