Manufacturing processes such as explosive welding, sand blasting, and shot peening have been used to join materials and alter material properties in a controlled manner. Emerging technologies, such as cold spray processing, make use of high-velocity particle impacts with a variety of materials, for near net-shape manufacturing and material reclaim. The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for the researchers involved in all aspects of impact and related material behavior in various manufacturing processes and material build-up methods.
