This chapter explains how to join beryllium parts using adhesive bonding and mechanical fastening techniques and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each method. It describes the stresses that need to be considered when designing adhesive bonds, the benefits and limitations of different adhesives, and surface preparation requirements. It explains how adhesives are applied and cured and how curing times and temperatures affect bonding strength. It also discusses the use of bolts and rivets and the different types of joints that can be made with them.
