Diffusion Beading of fabrics is an try to pool the event in vacuum diffusion bonding gathered through a couple of mechanical engineering works, learn institutions, and faculties. The e-book discusses the important bonding variables and suggested techniques for diffusion bonding in vacuum; the apparatus for diffusion bonding and creation cost; and the mechanization and automation of apparatus.

The Blasting Action of Cardox and Compressed-air Discharges The blasting action of the explosive substitutes is substantially one of gas expansion. Any body stress waves are likely to be of little significance, although the surface Rayleigh waves can be of an order comparable with those produced by some chemical explosives . The initial jet of gas or liquid impacts upon the sides of the borehole and penetrates into the confining medium to a depth determined by the initial velocity and the mass flow.
Effects of Stemming the Charge Stemming is used to confine the explosion gases and thus increase the amplitude of the peak explosion pressure. Johnsson and Hofmeister  describe comparative blasts in rock salt with variations in stemming. A charge of 300 g of explosive stemmed with sand or granular salt produced the same effect as 400 g of unstemmed charge (Fig. 19).
