    FURMANITE TANKERSKA Grimaldi Group Walker Technical The Co Patch First Stakeholders and Technical Partners Forum On 11th and 12th January 2011 the Co Patch consortium held its first Stakeholder and Technical Forum meeting in Paris France The Forum was well attended and there was a good mix of Marine and Civil sector representatives amongst the attendees During both forum sessions attendees were able to discuss current technologies involving composite patch repairs of ships and other steel structures Marine and Civil Engineering the possible future needs of industry and the regulatory controls which may influence the use of these and which may require to be complied with in the future The forum comprised of two sessions held over two days The sessions were made up of Partners and stakeholders on day one and technical forum members on day two The venue for both days was the Evergreen Laurel Hotel which provided excellent facilities for the event On both days the host Allan Larsen of BUREAU VERITAS opened the forum by welcoming all the attendees and was followed by the Co Patch Coordinator Professor Nicholas Tsouvalis who provided an overview of the Co Patch project During both days presentations and moderated sessions provided scope for discussion and an open exchange of information which will help to progress the project over the next twenty four months Open discussion was held with excellent exchange of technical know how related to strengthening and repairs of metallic structures using composite materials applications procedures and regulatory issues On 13th of January the project partners remained for a third day of meetings which included the project steering committee meeting for which the venue was the Bureau Veritas head office in Paris Day 1 Stakeholders Forum Following the opening and welcoming session the role of Stakeholders Forum was discussed and Dr Farshad Salamat Zadeh of TWI presented a history of repair and strengthening of metallic structures steel plate to today s composites materials Brian Bell of Network Rail UK gave an informative overview of FRP repairs in the civil engineering sector There were four moderated and open discussion sessions on the following topics The benefits and problems with traditional repairs Chaired by AS2CON Knowledge and experience of composite patches Chaired by METTLE Benefits and problems associated with composite patch repairs Chaired by AS2CON Possible future uses of composite patch repair including technical Q A Chaired by METTLE Wrap up session Chaired by SSA Day 2 Technical Partners Forum Following the opening and welcoming session the role of Technical Partners Forum was discussed by Marielle Labrosse of METTLE There were four moderated and open discussion sessions on the following topics Regulatory Process Chaired by BV Materials Chaired by NTUA and UniS Design Surface preparation and application Chaired by TWI A presentation was given by Richard Lee of ESR Technology on the Inspection and Repair of Structures as part of his collaborative work with Professor Simon Frost of Walker Technical Inspection and Q A Chaired by NTNU Open Forum Chaired by

    of composite patch reinforcement in the marine bridge environment in both short term and long term Developing a generalised procedure for the design and application of composite patch reinforcements in steel marine and civil engineering infrastructure applications Evaluating existing or developing new practically applicable and sensor based monitoring techniques of the final through life structure integrity of the patch Demonstrating the effectiveness of the developed design tools and procedures through full scale tests Developing an internationally recognised training programme for personnel Project achievements During the 40 months of the project 7 technical WPs have been carried out WP1 Specification of application cases BV the objectives were to identify and specify the repair application cases and establish a stakeholder forum to discuss and agree the business and regulatory implications of introducing composite patch repair The first task has been to identify relevant ship types and civil structures to define applications cases with typical damages and defects to investigate the efficiency of the Co Patch technology The second task has been the organization of stakeholders forums to demonstrate that composite patch repairs can be a permanent solution and to get feedback and guidelines about stakeholders expectations WP2 Monitoring methods and procedures NTNU the purpose of this work was to investigate and adopt existing or develop new sensor based monitoring systems To ensure good quality of patch repairs To monitor patch structural integrity during its operational life To carry out this work several monitoring procedures were investigated and it was concluded that optical fibres strain gauges ultrasound and the Bondmaster system are all suitable methods but some are better suited to certain applications than others WP3 Laboratory testing NTUA the objectives of WP3 were to experimentally prove that the use of a composite patch increases the static strength or the fatigue life of a defected steel structure and provide data for Calibration and validation of the numerical models for WP4 Calibration and validation of the non destructive patch monitoring methods specified in WP2 The first task was to select the materials epoxy or vinylester resin and the preparation method hand lay up infusion or prepreg and then tests involving Mid scale and Large scale as well as short and long term experiments were carried out This work is almost complete and the main conclusions are that Stiffness and strength are improved over the original specimen values for most of the grit blasted pre treated specimens Grit blasting pre treatment provides good long term adhesion whilst needle gun pre treatment led to early failure Failure was either cohesive within the adhesive or adhesive at the adhesive metal interface No failure was seen in the patch Composite patch repairs can be beneficial in delaying crack growth Protection of the patch bond line is critical regarding environmental resistance issues WP4 Numerical simulation procedures CETENA the aim of this WP was to simulate the behaviour and to predict the stiffness and strength of composite patch repaired steel structures through Finite Element numerical models and carry out a
