Research and Innovation
ECS members develop products that are high in quality and added value for users. Coupled with reliable services, they facilitate modern alternatives to conventional construction techniques, increase safety in construction, and thus contribute to effective construction.
The ECS assumes the task of initiating and coordinating pre-competitive research projects. Here, practical implementation of the results is always the focus.
The main topics of research include:
- earthquake excitations on facade elements
- bond behaviour of reinforcement bars
- reinforcement according to EN 1992-1-1 (EC 2)
- expanding design standards to large-diameter reinforcing steel
