Task descriptions

The main research tasks are aimed at developing understanding and models to describe the performance of materials under conditions of specific interest for arctic applications: low temperatures, large temperature variations, and large imposed deformations. An overall research task is to develop guidelines for qualification of materials for use under arctic conditions. The project will address steel materials and weldments, polymer materials, and composite and hybrid solutions. Four main workpackages (WP’s) have been defined within the project:

  • WP 1 - Steel fabrication and mechanical characterisation
  • WP 2 - Strength and toughness criteria for safe materials utilisation
  • WP 3 - Polymer coatings
  • WP 4 - New concepts and materials solutions
  • WP 5 - Project guidelines
