This study examines the deformation behavior of P92 steel (ferritic, 9% Cr) at high temperatures (600°C to 900°C) using isothermal hot tensile tests. Particular focus is placed on the stress-strain behavior around its alpha-gamma transition temperature (825°C). Additionally, fire accident simulation heating tests were conducted to assess the integrity of P92 beyond 650°C (relevant for short-term creep) and compare it to stainless steel 1.4404 (potential building material). Finally, microstructural analysis was performed on tested samples, revealing that the martensitic structure with characteristic laths was retained at temperatures up to 750°C.
