There are three reported observations of pseudotwins in B2 alloys. It is argued here that pseudotwinning using the usual b.c.c. twinning mode is impossible if the alloys are fully ordered. The argument is based on energetic grounds, using first-principles quantum mechanical calculations. © 1995 Elsevier Science Ltd.
