The paper presents application of combined in situ annealing and orientation mapping technique for investigation the microstructural changes in the aluminium alloy 6013 with bimodal distribution of the second phase particles during recovery and recrystallization processes. Information about grain distribution, misorientation between grains, size and shape of the grains at each stage of recrystallization process were obtained. Complexity of the experimental procedure is defined and discussed in order to avoid artificial results. Although the article described the advantages and disadvantages of those method used in transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy in the work the results from scanning electron microscopy/electron backscattering diffraction in situ heating experiments are highlighted. Obtained data are in a good agreement with previous transmission electron microscopy and calorimetry studies.
