The diffusionless growth model of bainite formation was included in an international consensus in 1912 that all transformation products of austenite form by an initial transformation to martensite. The introduction of isothermal treatment revealed that all the products form directly. However, for bainite, the idea of some relation to martensite survived and developed into the diffusionless paradigm. Zener introduced the T (o) concept for predicting the start temperature of lower bainite, but also described diffusional growth of upper bainite. The present description of the diffusionless growth model is now examined and criticized.
