Surface roughening in uniaxially tensile specimens of commercially pure titanium VT1-0 has been investigated using electron backscatter diffraction, optical and atomic force microscopy, and numerical simulation. It is shown that intragranular slip leads to the rotation of surface grains, due to which the grain surface is inclined and a terrace is formed at the interface with neighboring grains. The effect of the crystallographic grain orientation on the grain shape change and the degree of grain rotation occurring under constrained plastic deformation is demonstrated.
