Mechanisms of plastic deformation and stages of flow curve of a polycrystalline high-nitrogen steel were studied at various scale levels. The nonequilibrium state of the steel causes the enhanced role of the mesoscale level of plastic flow. At the micro-and mesoscale levels, the similitude law is fulfilled. The origin of the multistage nature of plastic flow and failure of high-nitrogen steels has been clarified.
