Influence of Gap Clearance on Brazing Joint Strength for Ni and Fe Based Filler Metals

The effect on brazing joint strength as gap clearance varies has been evaluated in this report. It is a known phenomenon that some brazing filler materials form stronger bonds when the gap clearance decreases, and this investigation adopts a practical approach at evaluating some of the modern Ni-based filler metals to determine if - and how much - strength increases as gap clearance decreases for those materials.
