METNET

PROJECT INFORMATION

The purpose of METNET network was to promote knowledge and best practices, and enable transfer of know-how between companies, research and training organizations on a European level. METNET research activities within steel construction now continue under Steel construction excellence center (SCEC). 

We thank all METNET partners for their contribution to the activities over the years.

NETWORK COOPERATION PROJECTS:

STABFI – Steel Cladding Systems for Stabilization of Steel Buildings in Fire

Research program of the Research Fund for Coal and Steel – 2016

Duration of the Project:

07/2017 – 07/2020

Short description

It has been shown that considerable savings can be achieved for structural members, columns, beams and generally frames, if sandwich panels and trapezoidal sheeting are used for stabilizing members and even the whole structure, compared to the case when stability is ensured by other means. The question addressed here is: can we achieve similar savings in fire due to this stabilizing effect? The project offers innovation of using it also during fire, which is expected to lead to considerable savings in costs and carbon emissions for steel structures in competition against other materials.

Target: 

– To develop and implement a pilot of a joint higher education construction course between HAMK, VIA AND Voronezh
– The curriculum and practical execution principles of developed international course can be applied as a basis in the future cooperation with other Russian universities

RUOSTE – Rules On High Strength Steel

Research program, RFCS – Research Fund for Coal and Steel ​

Duration of project:

07 / 2012 – 06 / 2015

Short description 

EN-1993 covers steel grades up to S460, and with small adjustments, up to S690.
In “RuOSte” the existing rules and requirements will be examined with regard to more economic and feasible design rules, covering steel grades up to S960. The main questions regarding ductility, strength of welded joints, tubular joints and stability will be addressed. In several case studies, impact of recommendations developed in the project for designing structures of HSS will be evaluated.​
