This connection is named by FEMA350  as welded flange plate
The upper flange plate
is uniaxially compressed, while the lower flange plate
of the girder is subject to tension.
A flange plate
connection is proposed in this paper to connect the coaxial inner conductor and the base-plate and to solve the abovementioned deficiencies and hidden problems.

The DWP consists of two precision X-band rectangular waveguides connected with screws to a 30.48 cm x 30.48 cm x 9.779 mm aluminum flange plate
(see Figure 2).
The following measures are taken to increase stability of the frame: substitution of 20 mm thickness of the joint flange plate
in the structural model by 40 mm thickness allowing joint operation of the adjacent flanges; stiffening ribs between openings 2 and 3, 4 and 5, 5 and 6 are extended by the whole cross-sectional height.
By simply placing the laser on the moving drive head, the Microgage 2000 can be secured with magnetic mounts or gripped in a flange plate
. Place the digital receiver pick-up at the end of the bore or attach it directly to the opposite end of the machine.
