Research

Research at the Department of Structural Engineering is primarily tied to experimental testing in well-equipped laboratories and numerical (program controlled) simulations. Our strength lies in the combination of these, while our theoretical foundation is mechanics. Research and development encompass the following disciplines and fields:

Large projects and programmes

Title: Hydrogen-induced degradation of offshore steels in ageing infrastructure - models for prevention and prediction (HIPP)

Duration: 2014-2018
Funding: 17 mkr from the Norwegian Research Council
 

Centres

The department is heavily involved in two Centres for Research-based Innovation (SFI):

SIMLab, the Structural Impact Laboratory, is hosted and managed by the department.

COIN, the Concrete Innovation Centre, is managed through SINTEF, but with strong participation from the department.
