the reason we weld is to support the arch sort of
like a buttress in an old church. the arch will want
to spread, the welding holds it in place.
a good welder will help you a great deal.
discuss the way the walls need support and the arch
will try and spread.
take his advice..the good welders know a thing or two.
in most of my applications we actually bolt the
steel to the floor. drill four holes in the cement
floor and insert an expanding bolt. we weld a L shaped
bracket to the vertical corner brace and drill a hole
flat on the ground...set it over the bolt...bolt it tight.
it will be logical to the welder, i am sure. as long as he
is on site, let him do his thing. remember, we are not
there to consult. he is.
