Abstract. In the present study, underwater explosive welding of commercial pure Sn and Al plates was attempted. Distance between the explosive and the center of the sample was varied to change the pressure applied to the plates to be welded. Evolution of interfacial microstructures at the welded Sn/Al joints was assessed. An increase in the distance between explosive and the sample exhibited decrease in the formation of wavy morphology at the interface. Cross-sectional interfacial microstructures clearly indicated that, Sn and Al plates can be joined successfully using underwater explosive welding technique.
