Bainite is found in steels at temperatures ranging between 250oF to 550oF in relation to the steel alloy content. Bainitic microstructures can be created in a multiplicity of steel deliberately to achieve a particular toughness and strength combination and are resistant to fatigue or creep deformation such as hydrogen embrittlement susceptibility. According to Mahnken & Schineidt (1826), Bainitic structures formed as a result of welding have detrimental effects on welded joint’s fracture toughness. The composition of bainitic steel includes carbon, iron, and another component from the aluminum or silicon group. The component added amounts to at least 1.5% of the bainitic steel total weight.
