Previous works [
] demonstrated that progressive cold drawing in eutectoid steels affects the microstructure of the material at the two basic microstructural levels. Firstly [
], it produces a preferential
of the pearlitic colonies, so that they tend to become more slender and to align in a direction quasi-parallel to the drawing direction. In addition [
], cold drawing produces a preferential
of the pearlite lamellae, so that the latter tend to align in a direction parallel to the wire axis, with a reduction at the same time of the pearlitic interlamellar spacing.
