Focus on metallic high entropy alloys (mhea) for extreme industrial applications to generate knowlege on manufacturing, microstructure and properties
Experimental and theoretical determination of the distribution of primary and secondary air pollutants in order to understand and predict their chemical transformation and their transport over europe.
Global waste management service. This will be the result of the integration of existing know-how and development of new technologies. Development efforts will focus on: recycling, treatment and control evaluation/optimisation.
Using selected historical buildings as a basis, determine quantitative/chemical parameters and limit values to more accurately define historical properties so historical and current production methods/techniques can be compared.
Will support further development of abatement strategies within europe by providing an improved scientific basis for the quantification of source-receptor relationships for photo-oxidants and acidifying substances.
Develop innovative highway processes for poland comprising four principal stages: testing of new bitumen formulations; asphalt design and properties; field validation in road trials; plant design, construction and commissioning.
Bridge prestressing system especially for external cables for reinforcement of existing/construction of new bridges. prolongation of structure exploitation due to better anti- corrosion protection and cable inspection system.
Crane bridge control system with in-built intelligence sensitive to both device and crane track running conditions and environmental influences. Expected outcome: improved crane reliability, safety and accuracy.
The focus will be on both on eco-design and end-of-life management, particularly because of the legislative impact of the european commission's new directive (dg xi), which will probably come into force in 2003.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
