On one hand, an increase in strain promotes the grain boundary migration and as a consequence, the recrystallization process is accelerated; on the other, it is favorable for some microalloying elements to precipitate at certain temperature, and the precipitates play a pinning effect, which inhibits the recrystallization process.
