Model calculations of primary recrystallization textures in bcc metals were carried out on the basis of a model which considers oriented nucleation as well as oriented growth. The influence of the input parameters, as deformation texture, nucleation distribution and growth law were investigated systematically. It is shown that the inhomogeneity of the deformed microstructure has to be taken into account. With this essential assumption the main features of the recrystallization texture formation can be explained by a growth selection process according to a 27 <110> and 84 <110> orientation relationship.
