Massive transformations are thermally activated phenomena and exhibit nucleation and growth characteristics primarily controlled by the interface between parent and product phases that is generally considered incoherent. This article focuses on the nucleation and growth kinetics involved in massive transformations and illustrates the resulting phases and structures in ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys.
