New EU-Project: NewSkin

We are pleased to be a project partner of the Open Innovation Test Bed "NewSkin" (GA 862100).

In this European project we participate in the development of research infrastructures with this contribution:

Test bed for corrosion and mechanical performance of large sized bolted connections (up to M72) and steel structures (LUH)


The objective of the proposed test bed is, to analyse the influence of corrosion and the hot-dip galvanizing on the fatigue of the bolted connection and to investigate the correlation between the degree of prestressing and the corrosion of the bolted connection.
