Effects of light deformations before and after precipitation (pre-deformation and post-deformation) on orientation distribution of intergranular bcc-precipitates were examined in a Ni-43mass%Cr alloy by electron backscattered diffraction. It was found that the deviation angles from both the plane/direction parallel orientation relationships in the Kurdjumov-Sachs orientation relationship of intergranular precipitates were increased by both pre- and post-deformations, but post-deformation was more effective. Based on this result, microstructural evolution of intergranular precipitates formed dynamically was discussed with particular attention to coherent-to-incoherent transition of precipitates.
