Three diffusion welding systems were evaluated for applicability to the fabrication of advanced design air-cooled gas turbine blades from split halves. The joining systems evaluated were based upon the use of interlayers to promote and enhance diffusion welding of the directionally solidified superalloy modification of MARM-200 used for this program. Particular emphasis was placed on increasing the ability of the joining systems to accommodate lack of fit which is a major concern in diffusion welding complex-shaped hollow parts.
