Abstract. In explosive welding, it is known well that the collision angle and collision velocity are the important parameters to achieve good welding. In addition, generations of a metal jet and the interfacial waves are important for the explosive welding conditions. To know the parameters and the collision conditions, the optical observation and the numerical simulation for the oblique collision using a powder gun were done by the authors. A metal jet was observed clearly by using a powder gun and wavy interface was generated without the intermetallic layer for the reactive materials by controlling the welding conditions. In this investigation, the results of the optical observations and the numerical analysis for similar and dissimilar material combinations were reported.
