This paper deals with a metallographic study of shear and deformation bands, which are formed and developed during rolling and fatigue tests of single crystals and polycrystals of Fe–3% Si. The effect of the initial orientation of the single crystals, dimensions of grains in polycrystals, thickness of the samples and certain rolling factors on the formation of banded structures was analyzed. The effect of these structures on the structure and the texture, which appear in the deformed alloy subject to annealing, was studied too.The obtained data provided a better account of the banded structures and permitted directing ways to control their formation and evolution.
