Abstract:

Explosion bonding of dissimilar materials has been performed since the 1960s on a commercial basis. However, titanium and ultra high hardness steel is not currently fabricated. This research will develop baseline explosion bonding parameters for titanium and medium carbon alloy steel in the annealed condition and susequent parameters for heat treating the steel to the desired hardness. This work will study the effect of various rapid heat treating techniques to heat treat alloy or tool steel to the maximum hardness without significantly affecting the formation of brittle intermetallics at the bond joint interface or the overall joint strength.
