Heat Treatment of Welded Joints - Part 2 - TWI

Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) As mentioned in Part 1, PWHT is a specific term that encompasses both stress relief and tempering and is not to be confused with heat treatments after welding. Such treatments may comprise ageing of aluminium alloys, solution treatment of austenitic stainless steel, hydrogen release etc. PWHT is a mandatory requirement in many codes

Post Heat. Carried out immediately on completion of welding, it is a low temperature heat treatment, increasing the preheat by 100°c and maintaining this for around 3 or 4 hours. Assisting the diffusion of any hydrogen in the weld or HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) out of the joint, therefore reduces the risk of hydrogen induced cold cracking.

Post Weld Heat Treatment - an overview ScienceDirect

Post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) reduces the levels of tensile residual stresses in a joint. It does not reduce these levels to zero, however, and, even in a very well controlled thermal cycle, the levels of final residual stress are unlikely to be much below 30% of the material yield strength.

How Heat Treatment Can Affect Welded Joints Alpha

Much though engineers wish the opposite were true, heat treatment work can weaken welded joints. Since welding equipment uses thermal energy to fuse parts together and add filer metals, the application of more heat can further alter a welds jointing properties.
