WILSON1 has recently reported that the intensity of magnetization of a high-carbon steel increases with plastic deformation of one kind, but that it suffers a recession after a relatively small additional plastic strain applied in a direction opposite to that originally used. I suggest that these results could be predicted from an analysis of the Bauschinger effect.
