the change in grain structure which occurs when the metal is annealed; during which grains, deformed and strain hardened by working, becomes new equiaxed unstrained grains. This results in decreased hardness and tensile strength together with an increase in the ductility. Recrystalization is a function of time, temperature and percent reduction.
