Abstract

A primary explosive, lead azide, mixed with a suitable screening vehicle was deposited on the surface of copper and nickel specimens recrystallized to grain sizes between 0.020 MM to 0.25 MM. Measurements of stress vs. strain for different copper and nickel grain sizes and mass ratios indicated that both materials were severely work hardened by the passage of an explosively generated pressure wave.
