Technological fundamentals of SHS compacting

  • 43 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


Different versions of the shock-wave treatment of SHS systems are considered. It is shown that a combination of SHS with explosive compaction is the most promising method as regards development of new materials. This method was used to produce high-density materials with diverse properties such as refractory hard alloys, high-temperature superconductors, etc. The method allows the structure formation to be controlled during the material synthesis, and this is demonstrated by producing fine-grained ceramics.
