Abstract:

An explosive device and process of using same is provided to exert a desired force on an object without exposure to the flame heat generated upon detonation of explosive charge sandwiched between protective layers of a protective casing. One of the layers is of a thickness sufficient to absorb substantially all of the explosive released thermal energy but sufficiently thin to transfer the kinetic energy associated with the desired force for cutting andor deformation of the object.
