This paper describes the evaluation of the creep behavior with two types of matching filler metals for 2.25Cr-1.6W(T23)/Mod. 9Cr-1Mo(T91) dissimilar weld joint. Through the welding procedure qualification tests prior to the creep tests, optimum PWHT holding times at 745±5oC were determined as 30minutes for T23 matching filler metal and 60minutes for T91 matching filler metal. It was also confirmed that carbon migration across the weld interfaces and the softened area at HAZ occurred during PWHT. Creep rupture tests were carried out at 575-650oC and 70-220MPa for two dissimilar metal welds manufactured by an optimum PWHT condition. From the comparison of creep rupture strength, it was shown that the creep strength of the welded joint including T23 matching filler metal was similar to that of T23 base material and somewhat higher than that of the welded joint including T91 matching filler metal. From metallurgical study on the crept specimen, the creep damage of T23/T91 dissimilar weld joints could occur at T23 side IC HAZ and near the T23/T91 weld interface simultaneously. However, the final failure locations seemed to depend on the filler metal and the cause of this phenomenon might be regarded as the additional effect of carbon migration across the weld interfaces. It is thought that the dissimilar weld including T91 filler metal which failures at T23 side CG HAZ subject to both metallurgical notch and carbon migration become more susceptible to creep damage than that including T23 filler metal in which the carbon depletion occurs at the T23 filler metal with higher creep strength than T23 HAZ. T23 filler metal can therefore be proposed for matching filler metal of T23/T91 dissimilar weld joints
