Weathering structural steel

Innovations for optimal use of weathering structural steel in steel and composite bridges

The aim of the project is to create prerequisites for the optimum usage of weathering steel in steel and composite bridge constructions. The new inspection methods are to be developed for the reliable detection of cracks below the corrosion layer in weathering steel bridges during the entire service life of the bridge (100 years). Intended research results should provide secure, contactless measurement technology for damage analysis of weathering steel bridges.

Duration: 2016 until 2019
