Tasks for Friday 6 March
Steel nails were cured onto a thin metal plate on March 4.
A weight test was carried in order to calculate adhesive strength of the materials. <br.> Results:
We would like to repeat this adhesive strength test for zinc nails and steel nails, again. The thickness of the layer cured in between the nails and the plate could have played a major role in the inconsistent results. A further factor is the filing of the nail heads, some of them were smoother and had a more circular shape than others. <br.>
Additionally, a further factor is torque. Tamanika Tinsley mentioned how it might be important to control the point at which the weight is attached. This will be better monitored in the next trial.
Thermal conductivity study
A copy of Tamanika's results is as follows:
