In this research, the effect of post weld heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the three-layer explosion welding joint of austenitic steel 321-aluminum 1050-aluminum 5083 was investigated. The welded samples were heat treated at 250 and 350°C for 10000 seconds. The structure and properties were investigated using optical microscope, scanning electron microscope, microhardness measurement and shear-compressive strength. The results showed that in all conditions, the interface of aluminum 5083-aluminum 1050 was smooth and with complete continuity; However, the interface between stainless steel 321 and aluminum 1050 had a reaction layer with variable and discontinuous thickness. During the heat treatment, the thickness of the interface layer increases according to the diffusion kinetics and reaches 18.6 microns in the maximum value. With the increase of heat treatment temperature, the average concentration of aluminum in the reaction layer of the interface increased from 85% to more than 90%, but the concentration of iron decreased from 10% to less than 5%. Also, shear-compressive strength decreases from 94.6 to 56.7 MPa.
