Definitions for "Bainite"
An acicular aggregate of ferrite and carbide particles formed when austenite is transformed on cooling at temperatures in the intermediate (200-450°C) range, i.e. above the martensite and below the pearlite range.
A two-phase microconstituant, containing a fine needle-like microstructure of ferrite and cementite, that forms in steels that are isothermally transformed at relatively low temperatures.
An intermediate transformation product from austenite in the heat treatment of steel. Bainite can somewhat resemble pearlite or martensite, depending on the transformation temperature.
