Logo der Hochschule Karlsruhe (HKA)

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is one of the most research-intensive universities of applied sciences in Baden-W├╝rttemberg. The focus is on practical research and development projects. Maintaining infrastructure is established as the main research topic at the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering. Here, the focus is also on maintenance management, the life cycle analysis of structures and the analysis of construction engineering.
In the PREVIEW project, the university is primarily concerned with the vulnerability of hydraulic structures with regard to safety scenarios. This results in an assessment of default probabilities and failure sequences, to derive a risk-based maintenance strategy.
