This study aims to investigate the influences of in-service welding conditions on maximum HAZ hardness, namely heat input, pipe wall thickness, and medium flow rate. The research consists of two parts; computationally thermal analysis and actual welding experiments. In conclusion, it suggested that increasing heat input resulted in decreasing maximum HAZ hardness, as well as, the range of run pipe thickness in the experiment was insignificantly influenced on HAZ hardness. Additionally, the higher flow rate induced more HAZ hardness with a certain flow rate level. HAZ hardness between the sleeve plate and the run pipe was insignificantly different. Nevertheless, it indicated that HAZ hardness prediction via computational analysis was more conservative than experiments.
