The motion and geometry of connected grain boundary systems with triple junctions in aluminium -10 ppm magnesium was investigated in-situ with a special designed SEM heating stage. The results show that triple junctions can have a marked influence on grain boundary motion. The grain area change with annealing time was from a hot stage in the SEM. An analysis of the experimental data reveals that there is no unique relationship between growth rate and the number n of grain sides (Von Neumann-Mullins relation). This is attributed to the effect of triple junction drag on grain growth.
