Description: We were asked at the previous Atlas collaboration meeting to confirm our proposal that the Argonne design option could maintain the tie straps in a prestressed condition after welding. This was deemed necessary to maintain compression loading of the steel plate stack. The compression load requirement was set at a load equivalent to that necessary to maintain continuity of the stack using friction. We will attempt to prove that through the strap testing and the ultimate construction of the 25 cm prototype stack that we have in fact met these requirements.
