An improved model is presented for the formation of bainitic structures during isothermal heat treatment conditions. The model based on displacive mechanism consists of a new expression for the volume fraction of bainite as a function of time, incorporating a temperature and chemical composition-based expression for the number density of initial nucleation sites and limiting the volume fraction of bainite. The model has been validated with respect to experimental data of high- as well as low-carbon steels. It has been found that the isothermal transformation kinetics is well predicted for all steels.
