Re: Old bridges and rivets (again)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

These rivets were also used in building in the 1920's. However, they were
typically encased in concrete and have not shown any deterioration. Tests done
at the University of Washington have shown these rivets to have ultimate
capacity in the order of 40 ksi.
