Ring compression tests were conducted at constant true strain rates in the temperature range of 900–975°C. The constant friction shear factor, m, was determined using a calibration chart. Scaling was permitted during the experiments in which a glass based lubricant was also used. Frictional conditions were affected most by the rate of strain; increasing it led to lower values of m.
