We conduct research and development activities on steel structures, with a focus on the use of high strength steels in various structures, e.g. in automotive and building industries. By utilising high strength steel, many products can be made lighter. This contributes positively to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, both in the manufacturing of the structures as well as in the moving of the products, e.g. cars. Additionally, the structures beneath the steel parts can be made lighter. Our research aims at more durable and lighter steel structures that are also easier to manufacture.
We also conduct research on the recyclability of steel components. Additionally, our expertise covers structural analysis that can be utilised in e.g. fire safety design or steel structures. Optimal design enables more cost efficient structures.
