In this report, we propose a new explosive welding method, and the welding is performed at employing underwater shock pressure produced by the underwater explosion of an explosive placed at one side almost vertical to the specimen to be welded. In order to prevent the reduction of the shock pressure with the distance away from explosive, a steel reflector is placed over the area of the specimen. The effects of the reflector are investigated based on the experimental results and the process is numerically analyzed results.
