In the present time there is a clear effort to achieve the most exact mathematical description of the behaviour of "Hi-tech" materials when exposed to temperature and stress loading. Besides the common numerically predicted values such as temperature, deformation and stress fields, or as the case may be structure changes during phase transformations, demands for prediction of the austenitic grain size in HAZ of welds become more and more frequent. That is why the present submission deals with the analysis of the determination of the grain size and grain growth kinetics of HR3C single-phase austenitic steel using the Monte Carlo Potts method. The procedure of obtaining the input data for numerical simulations will be demonstrated on HR3C steel, including the determination of grain growth kinetics and definition of all the parameters needed for a computational model. Results from the numerical simulation in Sysweld program will be then compared against the real experiment for a multi-layered weld made on HR3C tube.
