high-tensile strength bolt, as shown in figure 8-46. The hole for this bolt is drilled slightly larger than the bolt diameter so that the bolt may be extracted after the toothed ring is embedded. The spike grid is used as shown in figure 8-47. A spike grid may be flat (for joining flat surfaces), single-curved (for joining a flat and a curved surface), or double-curved (for joining two curved surfaces). A spike grid is embedded in the same manner as a toothed ring.
