The dissipation below Tc in external fields up to 12T has been studied in five groups of high temperature cuprates. The dissipation is due to Lorentz-force driven flux motion and is least pronounced in the compound with the smallest electronic anisotropy (Ba2YCu3O7). A crossover temperature Tx is defined at which the effective activation energy for flux motion is ~kT. This Tx is material specific. An H-T phase diagram is presented for Ba2YCu3O7 and Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 demonstrating the qualitative similarities and quantitative differences in the dissipation behavior in these two compounds.
