Alongside the workshop containing the model steam trains and potentially explosive welding
cylinders, two further sheds including a builders workshop were also destroyed while a fourth shed and a greenhouse sustained damage from the blaze.
In order to solve these problems, many welding methods have been practiced to investigate the joining between titanium alloys and stainless steels, mainly including brazing welding [7, 16-20], laser welding [2, 5, 6, 21-25], electron-beam welding [26-31], diffusion bonding [32-36], explosive welding [37-40], and friction stir welding [41-47].
Diffusion bonding, explosive welding, and friction stir welding have been successfully used to join dissimilar structures, such as Ti/Fe , Al/Fe , Cu/Ti , Cu/Fe , and Al/Mg , focusing on mechanical properties and the influence of parameters on the morphology and microstructural changes at the interfaces.
Mechanical, civil, chemical, and other engineers present 50 papers on such topics as welding a supersonic solid-state detonation in an overdriven porous mixture of aluminum and teflon, high-temperature elastic properties of refractory materials, energy dissipation in the explosive welding
of dissimilar metals, a newly developed unsteady wave sensing system for polycarbonate, the behavior of bubbles in a small water tank used for food processing using underwater shock waves, a deburring process performed by underwater shock waves, and experimental and numerical research of small metal disks driven by explosives.
Sir Bernard's field of expertise was high-pressure engineering, working closely with ICI on high-pressure polyethylene plant, and contributing to the development of explosive welding
used in prototype nuclear reactors.

Dynamic Materials has been blowing things up for 40 years and has dominated the explosive welding
market for much of that span.
The Scotswood Road exclusion zone could be in place for another 24 hours as firefighters were unable to rule out the presence of the explosive welding
gas acetylene in the cylinders.
Explosive bonding (also known as explosive welding
or explosive cladding) is a metallurgical technique used for bonding dissimilar metals into a highly strong joint.
Figure 1 shows that the final quality of clad plate depends on the explosive welding
process and the quality of initial metal plates.
Semtex Stype blasting explosive is a special-purpose product for explosive welding
of metals, forming of metals and other applications.
