Fragmentation Properties of Explosively Driven Additively Manufactured 15-5 ph Stainless Steel Cylinders

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



This research characterized the fracture behavior of detonating additively manufactured cylinders and compared experimental fragment velocities with theoretical Gurney equation predictions. The additively manufactured cylinders’ interlayer bonding successfully endured explosive loadings, but reduced material ductility caused by processing-related defects decreased casing expansion performance.
