The effect of cryogenic heavy rolling method on grain refinement has been studied and compared with those obtained by previous methods of cryogenic rolling and heavy rolling developed separately. Both grain structure and grain size were analyzed using electron back scattered diffraction (EBSD), which can distinguish grains each other by means of crystallographic misorientations between them. The cryogenic rolling and heavy rolling exhibit reduction in grain size of 39% and 87%, respectively, and the cryogenic heavy rolling shows reduced grain size similar to that observed in the heavy rolling. The heavy rolling was proved more effective in grain size refinement than the cryogenic rolling.
