What is meant by a reinforcement pad?

To make a branch connection, it is necessary to cut a hole in the pipe or pressure vessel. These cut points create a "hole weakening" on the vessel or piping system, due to the metal removed and the stress concentration that is then created. A reinforcement pad then used to strengthen the branch connection in the pipeline or nozzle of the pressure vessel.
