Research and development

We at VERROTEC are working closely to scientific practice. As an active research partner we are working in cooperation projects, in which SMEs are officially sponsored in the course of specific research projects.

In particular, this involves applied research, through which practical questions are investigated and the rapid transfer of knowledge to industry is to be ensured. Current research content aims in particular to develop monitoring methods for structural engineering ("smart health monitoring" SHM).

In addition, we are active in numerous project-related committees of research projects in structural engineering and support scientific institutes in aligning research content with practical requirements.

We continuously supervise student theses (e.g. bachelor theses, master theses, diploma theses) and cooperate with German and international universities.

Verrotec GmbH is currently working as a project partner on the following research projects:
Research project "BiGla"

Development of a mobile device as a functional sample for evaluating the current in situ stress conditions in glass

The aim is to develop a handy measuring instrument to capture specific stress conditions in glass based on its photoelasticity properties. This will make it possible to detect critical stresses in glass non-destructively in situ and to recommend action.

Duration from 01/04/2017 to 31/03/2019 (2 years)

The project is being financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), and it is a ZIM cooperation project of AiF Project GmbH (a joint venture of industrial research associations).

Research project "SENSOTEK"

Sensory adhesive for the detection of damage in glass construction

To the project fact sheet (PDF)

The project involves research on a new adhesive filled with microcapsules, which when subject to overload, displays visual changes thus enabling the identification of fault locations and overloads in the joint.

Duration from 01/08/2017 to 31/07/2020 (3 years)

The project is being financed by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), and it is KMU-innovativ collaborative project for SMEs (project sponsor, VDI Technology Centre).

Research project "Kleb-FOS"

This project is concerned with developing a monitoring method based on the optical fibre measurement technique for capturing the condition of the joints of structural bonded connections in construction engineering.

The aim is to capture the expansion conditions of bonded joints via fibre-optic sensors, which are provided in the adhesive joint (in-situ and non-destructive).

Duration 01/01/2019 to 30/06/2021 (2.5 years)

The project is being financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), and it is a ZIM cooperation project of AiF Project GmbH (a joint venture of industrial research associations).
