Abstract

ABUNDANT twinning has been observed in pure alpha iron (carbon 0.0022 per cent, silicon 0.0018 per cent) which has been passed slowly through the critical range, and also in pure alpha iron deformed and then recrystallised below the critical range. In the former, banded structures are common; in the latter, banded structures are the exception. However, the forms or habits of annealing twins in alpha iron are quite distinctive.
