AbstractDissimilar metal weld joints (DMWJ) widely exist in the nuclear power plants to join the different parts which are made of different structural materials. Among these DMWJs, safe-end DMWJ has attracted much attention of researchers and operating enterprises, as premature failures, mainly stress corrosion cracking failures, have occurred in these kinds of joints. However, DMWJ with 52M as filler metal in the nuclear power plants has no in-service experience. To ensure the structural integrity of the weld joint and the safe operation of the future plants, the microstructure and local properties of a domestic safe-end DMWJ by using hot-wire gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) technology was studied in detail by OM, SEM, micro-hardness testing, local mechanical tensile testing and slow strain rate tests. The tensile tests were performed at room temperature with the tensile speed of 5 mu m/s while the slow strain rate tests were conducted in simulated primary water containing 1500 mg/L B as H3BO3 and 2.3 mg/L Li as LiOH with 2 mg/L dissolved oxygen at 325 degrees C. A large amount of type I boundaries and type II boundaries which are susceptible to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) exist in 52Mb near the SA508/52Mb interface and result in the highest SCC susceptibility of this interface. Microstructure transition was found in the SA508 heat affected zone (HAZ). In 316LN HAZ, increasing the distance from the fusion boundary, the number fraction of CSL boundaries increase while the residual strain decreases, resulting in the second-highest SCC susceptibility of 316LN HAZ. In 52M, residual strain distributes randomly but not uniformly, the residual strain is prone to accumulate at the grain boundaries. Dramatic changes of mechanical properties are observed across the joint, especially at the SA508/52M interface. The differences of the local microstructure and chemical composition lead to the differences of the local properties of the weld joint.
