Welding Fundamentals and Processes
This article provides an overview of the important mechanistic aspects of explosion welding (EXW), the process-material interactions, and the critical aspects or parameters that must be controlled. The procedure for ensuring the control of process parameters is also discussed. The article explains the primary variables used to predict EXW parameters and the characteristics of the explosion weld. It concludes with a description of the manufacturing process and practice, and applications of the EXW.
