A kinetic theory of martensite formation is developed for the case when isothermal transformation does not complete, which is conventionally explained in terms of the change in the state of phase. The closest agreement with experiment is obtained when the Kaufman-Cohen theory modifie by Borgenstam and Hillert is used for the nucleation rate.
