Abstract:

Effort was directed toward obtaining strain rates for the Mo-12 Ti alloy. Strain rate data were also gathered for W, but complete data reduction was not completed. To affirm the results of the strain rates derived from the inductance measurements of blank velocity, comparison tests were made on AM350 stainless steel blanks. This comparison consisted of 2 ambient shots to which post yield strain gages were attached. The strain rate information obtained was compared with the inductance measurements. The forming characteristics of W were investigated. The results of these tests, particularly those with 40 dynamite, were most encouraging. Author
