This is an EU-granted project under FP7-PEOPLE-2011-IRSES. The overall objective of this project is to bring together an international team of researchers, with a wide variety of skills in electrochemistry, material science, structure engineering, nanotechnology, electromechanical engineering, and computer modelling, to develop new electrochemical treatment methods for both new and old RC structures to minimise both repairing and monitoring costs, and improve the structures’ long-term safety. The project is for staff exchanges between three European universities and two Chinese universities involving 18 researchers and 168 person-months during 4 years to fully explore the complementary strength and synergies within the consortium.
The project is carried out at the Divison of Building Technology in the research group Building Materials.
