Making use of Anelli's idea and an own model for isothermal grain growth, a new model for the grain growth during a continuous reheating process was deduced. This model makes use of the real three dimensional grain diameter instead of the mean linear intercept distance as a measure for the grain size. Two series of experiments have been undertaken: in the first series, the validity of the model for several intermediate temperatures has been investigated, while in the second series, the influence of the heating rate on the validity of the model has been verified. In both cases a quite reasonable matching between the prediction of the model and the experimentally determined three dimensional grain size has been found.
