Schmidt factor and slipping systems

  1. May 12, 2012 #1
    correct me if I'm wrong please:

    Initial slip system is [011] (-1-11)
    If I have a tensile axis orientated in [-214], as slipping proceeds it will rotate towards the following direction:

    [-214] + n[011] = [-225] it will rotate towards the [-225] direction.

    once it gets there, there will now be two slip systems available. [-101](111) and [011](-1-11).

    now.. my question is... my book it says that the [-225] will rotate towards the <112> type direction but will never quite get there. for deformation along the <112> type direction the rotations induced by the two slip systems exactly cancel

    my question is: WHYYYYYYY???????????????????
