Connect no. 173


The Bloodhound SSC© project is Britain's latest attempt at the world land speed record and development is progressing on a car able to reach 1000mph.

TWI is working on the design and build of the car chassis.

The method proposed is riv-bonding which combines adhesives and riveting to produce the strongest joint achievable.
