How can rail ends be secured for thermite welding?

To determine

The manner in which the rail ends can be secured for thermite welding.

Explanation

Thermite welding is a process that makes use of an exothermic reaction to create a high temperature. This is a type of welding that is widely used for the purpose of joining the railway tracks together.

In thermite welding, the heat required is produced from the reaction of aluminum powder with iron oxide. This process employs a exothermic reaction to heat the metal that is to be welded together, thereby reducing the necessity of any other sources of heat or current.

For performing thermite welding on the railway tracks, the tracks need to be secured in place...
