Mechanical Behaviour of Metals under Explosive Loading
The paper briefly examines the metallurgical effects of shock waves on different metals. Two points are then specifically addressed. The first one regards how X-ray diffraction (XRD) can be usefully employed to get exhaustive information about the microstructure of a shock loaded metal. The second point concerns the mechanisms of martensitic transformation in alloys such as AISI 304 when submitted to repeated explosive deformations.
