In 1955 the concept of hot isostatic pressing (HIP) was invented at Battelle’s Columbus Laboratories by Sailer, Dayton, Paprocki and Hodge1 as a means of diffusion bonding nuclear fuel elements. The principal reason for using a gas as the pressure transmitting medium was to effect bonding in three dimensions. Since many of the experimental fuel materials were powder products most of the early studies were performed with metallic matrix dispersion fuels, cermets and ceramics.2
