What state is Iron most magnetic?

  1. Oct 10, 2014 #1
    Hi guys, I'm designing and making a hydro powered generator for my college engineering project and I want to know what type of Iron e.g. Cast Iron or Wrought Iron has the highest magnetic field strength.

    Googling seems to give plenty of hits.

    It is not only a matter of cast vs wrought, but also what alloy you use. I find it hard to believe there are no handbooks with extensive tables.
