bainite

(ˈbeɪnaɪt)
n
(Metallurgy) a mixture of iron and iron carbide found in incompletely hardened steels, produced when austenite is transformed at temperatures between the pearlite and martensite ranges

All contain appreciable fractions of bainite and/or martensite of lath-type morphology with primary ferrite visible and designated accordingly.
For the former they changed a ferritic bainite beam to a boron beam and the latter from a DP500 to a dual-phase 980.
Carbon is partitioned into the remaining austenite during preceding phase transformations, that is, austenite to ferrite followed by carbide-free bainite, and therefore is a function of production process parameters.
Some published investigations reported that decrease of impact toughness caused by long-lasting operation is the least in the case of tempered bainite structure [4].
Instead of elongated grains and upper bainite (or pearlite), the microstructure (Figure 2) contains a mixture of ferritic grains with (probably) small islands of martensite.
