SIROCO (RFSR-CT-2014- 00024) Execution and reliability of slip resistant connections for steel structures using CS and SS

The SIROCO project intends (a) to provide more clear and improved procedures to increase the cost effectiveness of slip-resistant connections, (b) to develop innovative surface preparation systems and preloading methods for carbon steel connections, (c) enhance the use of injection bolts as an economical alternative for slip-resistant connections, (d) to solve the lack in knowledge in the design of slip-resistant connections in stainless steel to increase the competitiveness of stainless steel structures.
