In part II of this work is evaluated the as-welded microstructure of Ni-Cr-Fe alloys, which were selected and modeled in part I. Detailed characterization of primary and secondary precipitates, subgrain and grain structures, partitioning, and grain boundary morphology were developed. Microstructural characterization was carried out using optical microscopy, SEM, TEM, EBSD, and XEDS techniques. These results were analyzed and compared to modeling results displaying a good agreement. The Hf additions produced the highest waviness of grain boundaries, which were related to distribution of Hf-rich carbonitrides. Experimental evidences about Mo distribution into crystal lattice have provided information about its possible role in ductility-dip cracking (DDC). Characterization results of studied alloys were analyzed and linked to their DDC resistance data aiming to establish relationships between as-welded microstructure and hot deformation performance. Wavy grain boundaries, primary carbides distribution, and strengthened crystal lattice are metallurgical characteristics related to high DDC resistance. (AU)
