Abstract : The patent describes a composite material having greater strength to density and modulus to density ratios than existing monolithic materials comprising of a titanium alloy having either beryllium wires or beryllium wires having a titanium cladding or wrapping for reinforcement. In forming the composite, laminates of titanium alloy sheets are explosively welded to beryllium wire reinforcement or titanium clad or wrapped beryllium wire reinforcement by stacking the laminates in layers with the wires placed between layers and explosively welding the layers and wires together.
