On the possible importance of mechanical twinning for the development of the brass-type rolling texture and final comment on the above remarks by T. Leffers

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The author presents his final comments on the discussion between himself and Heye and Wasserman (see abstrs. A11834 and A11835 of 1970) which arose from the latter authors' paper on mechanical twinning (see abstr. A19815 of 1969). The validity of the twinning theory for the brass-type rolling texture is questioned for two reasons: There is no convincing crystallographic model explaining how the formation of the brass-type texture by combined twinning and slip should work in theory, and there are experimental results indicating that it should not work in practice
