High-Performance Bainitic Steels

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


The choreography of atoms during the course of the bainite transformation has major consequences on the development of structure. In particular, the scale and extent of the structure is dependent directly on the fact that the atoms move in a disciplined fashion. This information can be exploited to develop unconventional alloys - for example, rail steels which do not rely on carbides for their properties, and the hardest ever bainite which can be manufactured in bulk form, without the need for rapid heat treatment or mechanical processing.
