Changes of domain structure during the magnetization of a steel specimen result in magnetostriction. Magnetostrictive strain can be measured and it is well known that there are various structural parameters which are responsible for magnetostrictive changes. In this work we have studied the effect of stress on magnetostriction in constructional steel and the effect of texture on the anisotropy of magnetostriction at saturation in strongly textured Fe-Si.
