What is the best way to connect 2 pieces of steel together, to make i strong on a Lloyds machine (bolt, weld & etc)??
I am required to make a 'joint' between to same steel samples.. but the rules are:
- The joint will be tested for strength & weighed. Mark awarded in proportional to Load (N) - 100 x mass (g)
- All materials and methods are permitted for joint (welding, bolting etc).
- Material around hole must NOT be reinforced, but it may ve cut back
- All completed joints must fit into the Lloyd machine, using standard attachment (with 8mm diameter pin through the 10mm hole). The holes MUST be 300 +/- 20 mm apart (centre to centre). These holes must be oringal holes - drilling new holes for pin is not permitted.
Any help would be So appreciated! Many thanks
