The effect of recrystallized grain size on the tensile stress and ductility of 99.99% purity aluminium was investigated at room temperature. It was proved that the grain size dependence of flow stress follows a modified Hall-Petch equation with coefficients depending linearly on ε1/2 up to the stability limit. The uniform strain can also be described by a linear dependence on d-1/2 according to which the uniform elongation increases with increasing grain size. The post-uniform elongation changes inversely to that of the uniform one accompanied by the decrease of the strain rate sensitivity.
