Columnar grained Ni is used as a model material allowing simultaneous non-surface investigations of the evolution of crystallographic orientations and deformation microstructures within individual grains as a function of rolling strain up to ε=0.7. Electron channelling contrast and electron backscattered diffraction are used to visualise microstructures and crystallographic orientations. It is found that both the microstructural and the textural development depend strongly on the initial grain orientation. A grain size effect is observed on the deformation-induced orientation scatter within the grains. Large grains have microstructure and orientation scatters similar to those observed in single crystals of similar orientation. The observations are interpreted based on a slip system analysis, considering the relative effects of the initial grain orientation and the interaction between neighbouring grains as well.
