Paper Abstract

Explosive welding, one of the high energy rate material processing, is known the technique to weld strongly for the dissimilar metal combinations. When a metal is collided to the other metal at high velocity with a certain angle, good welding is achieved in this technique. Important parameters of the explosive welding method are the collision velocity and the collision angle. And it is necessary to know these parameters to obtain the explosively welded materials of several metals combinations. However, the optical observation for the collision of metal plate accelerated by the explosive is difficult because of the obstruction by the spreading of detonation gas. In the present work a single-stage powder gun and high speed video camera were used to observe the inclined collision of metals at the high velocity. Projectile consisted by a metal disc and sabot was accelerated by the deflagration of a gunpowder and was collided to another metal disc set with a certain angle. Metal jet was generated at the collision point when the projectile was collided to the target disc in the range of suitable conditions. By using this observation system, a series of the flow from the high speed collision to the generation of metal jet could be taken photographs clearly. This investigation shows the experimental results of the similar and dissimilar metal collision, with comparing the visualization of a metal jet simulated numerically.
