Abstract:

Progress is reported on an inve tigation of explosive forming of selected refractory metals to optimize the strain rate conditions and the most suitable transmission media for achieving maximum formability as well as a determination of the effects of temperature up to a maximum of 1000 F. Basic materials to be investigated include 1ARC C ST Mo--12 Ti, 2 W, 3 Nb alloy Cb-74 and 4 Nb alloy CT-2WZ. Author
