A weld joint is composed of three principal zones viz., base metal, Heat Affected Zone HAZ, and weld zone. Thus, the variation in mechanical behavior exists not only among these zones, but also from point to point in each individual zone. Being destructive in nature, the conventional method of mechanical testing cannot successfully used to estimate the variation in the mechanical behavior at different zones of the weld joint. Moreover, the conventional method of mechanical testing cannot characterize the material using small amount of material. In this respect, Ball Indentation BI methodology was considered to be useful approach, since it can characterize the mechanical properties of a material using very small amount of material in non destructive manner. The present work is an attempt to characterize the variation in the mechanical properties among each zone global variation, and from point to point in each zone local variation of the similar weld joint used in nuclear application using BI approach. For this purpose, the similar weld joint of two SS-304 LN pipe lines was investigated using BI approach.
