    Experiments were conducted to determine the transverse stress sensitivity of the critical current (Ic) of jelly-roll multifilamentary Nb3Al wires at 8 and 12 T. For comparison, similar experiments were conducted on bronze-process (NbTi)3Sn wires. At 12 T and under a transverse compressive stress...

    Zone melting has been used to produce texture in extruded YBa2Cu3O6+x wires. Highly aligned microstructures are produced with a-b planes oriented along the axis of the wires. Microstructural observations show that changes in alignment orientation can occur, and can result in the inability to...
