The collaborative program with Russian scientists was successfully initiated and has included visits, joint experiments and the preparation of a number of manuscripts. The principal result of the research effort is that plastic shear can initiate exothermic reactions between Nb and Si powders. Regions of intense shear localization were generated in porous and densified mixtures by explosive loading. The research is being continued under an ARO contract. jg
