Abstract : This memorandum contains the presentations to the First National Symposium of the Center for High Energy Rate Forming in Denver, Colorado, on February 8, 1966. The presentations consist primarily of discussions by members of the Advisory Committee to the Center on activities within their respective organizations relating to high-energy-rate fabrication processes. A primary motivation underlying the presentations was to provide information indicating the scope of interest in the technical community and thus to guide the future activities of the Center for High Energy Rate Forming. Processes covered in a substantial way in these presentations include explosive forming, gas detonation forming, and explosive welding. (Author)
