Steel & Aluminum

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are currently looking at the design of a foundation for a bus stop.  There 
is a steel channel with a pipe and plate on one end.  Now the problem is that 
the bus stop is going to be fabricated out of aluminum and there is a bottom 
flange plate on the assembly that is made of aluminum so there are two 
questions here.  (1) Does anyone know of an inexpensive material to place 
between the two plates?  The forces are really low ~ 400# and 8 kip-ft on 
10"x10" plates and (2) Will Galv. A325 bolts be suitable for this connection 
or should SS be used?
