Ferritic/martensitic 9Cr-1Mo-V-Nb (P91) and 9Cr-0.5Mo-1.8W-V-Nb (P92) steel are used for high temperature (600-650°C) operating components in nuclear and thermal power plants. The present research work deals with the dissimilar joining of P91 and P92 steel using autogenous tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding and multi-pass gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) with filler. The evolution of δ-ferrite patches in weld fusion zone and heat affected zones (HAZs) were characterized in as-welded and post weld heat treatment (PWHT) condition. PWHT was carried out at 760°C for 2 h and 6 h, for both autogenous-TIG and GTA weld joints. Charpy toughness and microhardness tests were performed for autogenous-TIG welding and GTA welding process under as-welded and PWHT condition. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
