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 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.
