Abstract

Microstructural modifications of the bonding interface in an explosively welded Ti/Ti clad material using the preset angle standoff configuration with various flyer plate speeds have been studied. Explosive welding was completed at flyer plate speed over 420 m/s. The wavelength and amplitude of the wavy interface increased with increasing flyer plate speed up to 1060 m/s. The planar interface was obtained at flyer plate speed of 1150 m/s. The trace of melting was observed at the bonding interface in the present experimental conditions. It is concluded that the melting layer is responsible for the bonding of explosively welded Ti/Ti clad materials. An anomaly hardening zone was formed at the bonding interface in the clad material welded at flyer plate speed of 1150 m/s. The origin of the observed anomalous hardening has also been discussed.
