Slip Resistant Connections

Ten European organisations and academic partners involved in steel construction have embarked on a 3 year project to improve the viability and reliability of slip-resistant connections in steel structures.

The wider use of bolted structural designs (instead of large welded designs) has clear market benefits for hot dip galvanizing. EGGA is established as a partner in the project and is at the forefront of a dedicated work package to identify slip factors for galvanized surfaces in a variety of surface conditions.

The project is labelled ‘SIROCO’ (Execution and reliability of slip-resistant connections for steel structures using Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel) and is funded by the EC Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS). The project leader is Prof. Dr.-Ing Natalie Stranghöner of the Institute for Metal and Lightweight Structures at University of Duisburg-Essen.
