The ability to fabricate materials and components needed to improve gas-turbine engine performance depends on an ability to achieve reliable joints. Solid-state joining provides this ability. Diffusion bonding of compressor blades, friction welding of engine rotors, and solid-state bonding of turbine shafts by coextrusion of dissimilar metals are discussed as examples of applications of solid-state bonding. Parts made by these techniques have successfully completed engine tests.
