WP3 - Guidelines for the qualification of hybrid bonds


Based on the experimental and simulation results from WP1, a qualification procedure for adhesively bonded hybrid joints (steel/composite) representative for marine and offshore structures is developed with a focus on the long term performance of the adhesive bonds in marine and offshore environments. This WP is being led by the Class Societies in the project. It constists of:

  • Current regulatory requirements for hybrid adhesive joints

  • Design loads are determined from simulations

  • Qualification guidelines for adhesively bonded hybrid joints (steel/composite) of marine and offshore structures are developed based on the results of the WP1
