Objective

"Innovative Fastening Solutions" (InFaSo) promotes and encourages the wider use of steel in building structures where until now only concrete has been used. This is achieved by simple, efficient joints allowing for quick and easy connection of steel beams / columns to concrete structures with large tolerances.

These joints also allow easy removal, strengthening and application for renovation by a simplified manufacturing and an enlargement of the design strength and ductility. The results will be prepared in the form of a handbook and electronic construction aids so that also engineers not used to design in steel are able to implement them. Thus "InFaSo" opens the gate for new market chances for steel structures and decisively enhance the competitive position of the European steel construction sector.
