To understand the local deformation behavior is very important for improvement of deformability in aluminum alloys which possess poor deformation limit in comparison with steels. However, measurement of local deformation in the interior of metal is not sufficiently carried out. In this study, the development of local plastic strain is measured by means of X-ray 3D imaging technique, i.e. high-resolution synchrotron X-ray microtomography. The marker tracking method, which is based on 3D image processing in volumetric image, is developed for obtaining local strains in 3D. Deformation behaviour is particularly different in individual grains. It was found that grains with different orientations deform maintaining harmony by shear deformation.
