The tensile test of the recrystallized ODS ferritic steels was performed in the loading direction for the longitudinal and 45° inclined with respect to the grains alignment. The testing temperature was 800°C and the strain rate was 10–4 s–1. A clear serration structure was observed at near the grain boundaries at the surface of 45° specimen ruptured. This is a clear evidence of the occurrence of the grain boundary sliding in 45° direction. For the total strain of 12% in 45° direction, grain boundary deformation induced by sliding was estimated about 9%, whereas the amounts of the transgranular strains was 2% measured by EBSD analysis. The grain-subdivision was also identified near grain boundaries by FIB analysis, which could be caused by a dynamic recrystallization during the localized grain boundary deformation.
