The mechanism of slip in body‐centered cubic lattices is considered in terms of the relation between the orientation of the tensile axis and the active slip system. A ``projection'' of points in the unit stereographic triangle on its – side permits an analysis of experimental data and leads to an accurate determination of the ratio of the critical shear stresses on various planes.
