Innovation and Networking for Fatigue and Reliability Analysis of Structures - Training for Assessment of Risk

INFRASTAR provides innovative, multi-disciplinary and intersectoral training in innovative solutions to asset management of civil infrastructures. Focus is on the prediction of concrete infrastructure behaviour under fatigue, currently one of the most critical issues in the field. INFRASTAR considers two representative types of concrete infrastructures: bridges and wind turbine towers and foundations.

The network partners provides 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with a system-wide understanding of structure management on bridges and wind energy technology. This outstanding research training offers ranges from knowledge in materials to design loads, design of structures, monitoring of existing structures, development of sensors and innovative calculation methods for structural analysis, optimal and reliable management of structures.

Through these innovative activities, INFRASTAR will contribute to extend the service lifetime of structures, reduce overall costs and develop risk-based life-cycle approaches for future designs.
