HYPERION Project

Full title: Development of a Decision Support System for Improved Resilience & Sustainable Reconstruction of historic areas to cope with Climate Change & Extreme Events based on Novel Sensors and Modelling Tools
Project number: 821054
Financing: Horizon 2020 (EU)
Total budget: €5,997,728.75 EUR (€691,172.50 EUR allocated to OsloMet)
Project period: 1st June 2019 – 30th November 2022 (3.5 years)

HYPERION’s ambition is to produce a comprehensive tool to assess the threats of climate change in tandem with other natural hazards to cultural heritage sites.

Dr. Kioumarsi is currently leader of work package 5: Multi-Hazards Modelling, Vulnerability & Impact Assessment of the historic areas.

ReSEDiA Project

Full title: Research-based Structural Engineering in the Digital Age
Financing: Faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD), OsloMet
Total budget: 2 million NOK
Project period: 1st January 2019 – 31st December 2021 (3 years)

The objective of the ReSEDiA project is to strengthen the research basis of the Structural Engineering Research Group, establish its presence in the area both nationally and internationally, and to become leading in the field, while moving to the digital era taking full advantage of digitalization. This is important for the Bachelor, Master and PhD studies in Civil Engineering at OsloMet. The aim is for the group to be positioned in the national front in structural engineering while making impact also internationally. Furthermore, the cooperation with the Applied Artificial Intelligence group of OsloMet will promote interdisciplinarity and will open new interesting research challenges and paths.


CONSTIN Project

Full title: Effect of corrosion on the steel-to-concrete interaction
Financing: Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, OsloMet
Total budget: 200,000.00 NOK
Project period: 1st January 2019 – 30st June 2021 (2.5 years)

Dr. Kioumarsi is Project manager.

Participating institutions: Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway; University of Niccolò Cusano, Italy.

The goal of the research is to investigate the influence of the concrete-cover on the decay of the bond strength in reinforced concrete elements damaged by corrosion. The experimental survey has planned the realization of two types of specimens of different cover-to-diameter ratio, but characterized by the same bar diameter as well as the same concrete material properties


OPTION Project

Full title: Effect of corrosion on prestressed reinforced concrete beam
Financing: Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, OsloMet
Total budget: 200,000.00 NOK
Project period: 1st January 2019 – 30st June 2021 (2.5 years)

Dr. Kioumarsi is Project manager.

Participating institutions: Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway; University of Niccolò Cusano, Italy; Tor Vergata University, Italy.

The goal of the research is to conduct full-scale experimental tests to investigate the effect of corrosion on residual flexural capacity of the corroded prestressed reinforced concrete beams.
