Abstract : The patent relates to a turbine blade manufactured from a series of laminates each oriented in a radial-tangential plane for carrying its own centrifugal loads. The laminates are partially performed by being initially cut into a shape suitable for stacking and bonding and being further perforated along boundaries outlining the final blade shape desired for facilitating the machine removal of excess material. Additional perforations are also incorporated in each laminate for outlining a series of built-in coolant passages.
