The final report of the European research project STROBE (Stronger Steels in the Built Environment) is now available. The project developed cost-efficient design rules for HSS structures, focussing on ductility, plastic design, stability and the dynamics of floor systems.
Four webinars were held to inform engineers how to design HSS in accordance with current European practice, as well as cover brand new developments in design guidance arising from the STROBE project. An SCI Publication: High Strength Steel Design and Execution Guide (P432) was also produced.
Partners in the STROBE project include RWTH Aachen (Germany), Imperial College London (UK), University of Coimbra (Portugal), Dillinger (Germany), Hochtief Engineering GmbH Consult IKS (Germany) and SCI (Co-ordinator).
All resources including the final report, presentations and recordings of the webinars and a free download of the Publication can be found here. https://www.steel-sci.com/strobe.html
