Texture formation during secondary recrystallization depends on the nature of secondary recrystallization process itself. So microstructure evolution and texture development during secondary recrystallization should be discussed concurrently. The main goal of the paper is studying of the effect of internal stresses on grain boundary motion or, more generally, the interaction of grain boundaries with stress fields and the effect of deformation inhomogeniety on grain boundary mobility during secondary recrystallization. Considering transformation from normal grain growth to secondary recrystallization, the attempt was made to characterize the microstructure and to relate it to the processes of nucleation and growth of new rains. The nucleation process is heterogeneous. The data allow us to assume that the nuclei are strain free grains.
