Furthermore, a jointed tensile bar had to be constructed to join plates at either end of the Bar to counter a tendency to push out at either side.
Compared with a tensile bar injected at both ends to form a weld line in the middle, but with no push-pull action, tensile strengths were as much as 177% to 532% higher, respectively.
