Research Infrastructure For The Study Of Corrosion In Concrete Steel Reinforcement And Improvement Of The Structural Integrity Of Cyprus Buildings
The STEELCOR project aims to develop a new multi-beneficiary Research Infrastructure for the Corrosion of Concrete Steel Reinforcement and to put forward a systematic scientific research on Concrete Steel Reinforcement for the improvement of the Structural Integrity of Buildings and Structures in Cyprus. The project also aims to develop risk analysis, life cycle costing and digital mapping tools of Cyprus indentifying the risk areas due to high corrosion of concrete steel reinforcement. The mains aims of the STEELCOR project will be achieved through the following scientific and technological objectives: to evaluate the mechanical properties of different types of steel reinforcement, introduced in Cyprus over the past; to perform accelerated corrosion tests on bare steel reinforcement and concrete cast steel reinforcement; to perform fatigue testing on corroded and non-corroded steel reinforcement; to study the fractured surfaces of corroded samples; to undertake non-destructive testing of steel reinforcement and to perform static analysis on typical structures and buildings in Cyprus.
