Bainite: Mobility of the Transformation Interface

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


Experimental evidence is provided to show that the interface responsible for the austenite to bainite transformation exhibits the essential characterisitics of a glissile, semi-coherent interface. The experiments involve a comparison between the rate of formation of bainite, and the mobility of an interface whose motion does not lead to the formation of invariant-plane strain surface relief effects. It is demonstrated that true thermally activated motion of the latter kind of interface is extremely slow at temperatures where bainite forms.
