PREFABRICATED SOCKET CONNECTION
SOCKET TO BE WELDED TO PRIMARY STRUCTURE
Fillet welding is applied to the connection between primary structure, with socket as the intermediate joint at end of each structure. This is because welding is much stronger than bolting, thus, to ensure the primary structure is firm enough to support whole sculpture as well as resist wind, welding is the most suitable jointing method.
