Project Description

The Construction Engineering Research Group (CERG) of UHasselt, under the supervision of Prof. H. Degee (formerly active at University of Liege, Belgium), is a very recent and fast-growing research group focusing essentially on the consequences of specific requirements such as thermal and acoustic performances, exceptional loading or dismantling on the structural design and on the construction techniques. In the context of his current and former affiliations, H. Degee has been for a long time active at European level in the field of Steel Structures and Earthquake Engineering (numerous RFCS or other research projects). He is also member of the Belgian mirror committees for Eurocodes 3, 4 and 8. The modelling tasks will also be supervised by Prof. Bram Vandoren, specialist in numerical methods.
