Welding, Brazing, and Soldering
Explosion welding (EXW), like all other welding or joining processes, has a well defined set of input parameters or conditions that must fall within certain limits for the desired weld quality to be achieved. This article provides an overview of the important mechanistic aspects of EXW, the process-material interactions, and the critical aspects or parameters that must be controlled. The commercially used metals and alloys that can be joined with EXW are listed in a table. The article concludes with a discussion on parametric limits for EXW.
