Explosive Welding : Processes and Structures, Hardback Book

Explosive Welding : Processes and Structures Hardback


This reference explores explosion welding, a high intensity, transient impact that achieves metal compounds not obtainable otherwise.

Electron microscopy images cover the structure of numerous welded joints including titanium-orthorhombic titanium aluminide, copper-tantalum, aluminum-tantalum, iron-silver, steel-steel, and copper-titanium.

These weldable pairs have different solubility than their initial elements.

The authors present various processes and structures including granulating fragmentation, cusps, splashes, and quasi-wave interface.

Specific risk zones for chemical and petrochemical (coke chamber) reactors are probed and suggestions offered. Key Features:Offers new theories about explosion welding processes and structuresInvestigates dozens of weldable pairs with differing solubility from initial elementsStudies both hetero- and homogeneous pairsExplores welded joints with flat, wavy and quasi-wavy separation boundariesObserves irregularities of the separation surface relief observing asperities and splashes and their transformation under intensified welding modesUnveils a new type of fragmentation under explosion welding Explosive Welding: Processes and Structures is a valuable resource for a wide range of experts involved in explosion welding, engineers, as well as graduate and postgraduate students.
