Abstract:

The purpose of this discussion is to direct further attention to the severe matrix and twin plastic accommodation experimentally observed in the vicinity of mechanical twins in b.c.c. metals, e.g. alpha iron. This plastic accommodation is intimately associated with the twinning shear displacement, the twin size, and the twin shape. The reason for this distortion being prominent in the b.c.c. metals will be illustrated. An appreciation for the nature of this accommodating flow might allow a better understanding of the relationships between slip, twinning, and fracture in alpha iron. Author
