The acknowledged mechanism of creep in seam welds is the development of cavities (cavitation) around nonmetallic inclusions and carbides on the grain boundaries in the fine-grained heat affected zone (HAZ) or fusion zone of the seam weld (Fig.
Prior to mechanical working of longitudinally welded pipes (LWP), it is often necessary to determine exact position of seam weld. Reason for this is mostly due to inadequate mechanical properties of weld zone.
