7. What is mean by ‘PWHT’? Why it is required?
POST WELD HEAT TREATMENT” This is done to remove residual stress left in the joint which may cause brittle fracture.

To slow down the cooling rate.
9. Why post-heating is done on some pipe after the welding is over?
To maintain uniform homogeneous structure.
