Description: By contrast to recovery, which occurs uniformly throughout the microstructure recrystallisation involves the nucleation and growth of strain free grains in certain areas of the material, which grow to consume the deformed or recovered microstructure. This video shows recrystallisation process in an Al-Mg alloy. (Video courtesy of J Humphreys, Manchester Materials Science Centre).
