Bainite, like martensite, forms by a displacive mechanism of transformation. Based on microstructural observation and microhardness measurements it has been concluded that prior deformation of austenite reduces the amount of bainite that can be obtained at a given isothermal transformation temperature. This clearly establishes that, similar to martensite, bainite also shows "mechanical stabilisation.
