This handbook provides extremely useful data and information about theory and industrial applications that formerly were limited to applications in military ordnance, fireworks, and rock blasting. These “civilian” applications include spacecraft, aircraft, underwater vehicle systems, metal forming, cladding, riveting and some other production methods.
