Transient Liquid Phase Bonding of Pairings of Parent Superalloy Material with Different Composition and Grain Structure


Article Preview

Joining of different nickel-base superalloys could simplify the manufacturing of turbine blades. The used technique of choice is transient liquid phase bonding, which is an established repair technology for high temperature components. Two nickel-base superalloys with distinct composition and grain structure are bonded and the joints are analysed regarding the microstructure. To quantify the mechanical properties of these joints, tensile and short term creep rupture tests were performed at room and elevated temperatures.
