agree  Ramesh Madhavan: There are 3 ways of joining two metal pieces. You can melt the joining portion (weld), hold them with Nut and Bolt (Bolted) OR mould (by pressure) a piece if metal through matching holes. London Bridge is Rivetted!

  -> Thank you. Yes, riveting is another way. You can also join sections of pipeline by tightening a sleeve round the flanges.
