Abstract

The main objective of the 'Innovative stainless steel applications in transport vehicles' INSAPTRANS project was to disseminate the technical knowledge and application experience from two recently finished ECSC/RFCS-funded research projects, 'Stainless steels in bus constructions' ('Stainless steel bus') and 'Development of lightweight train and metro cars by using ultra high strength stainless steels' (DOLTRAC). The main project task was the preparation of a design handbook from the results data of the underlying projects, demonstrating the full potential of, and giving guidelines for, the application of safe and lightweight stainless steel structures in ground transport applications. The handbook was distributed, and is still available to the public free of charge in both paper and electronic forms. The second major activity was arranging a series of six regional seminars with Europeanwide coverage once the manual was completed. The target groups covered the whole ground transport industry sector and service supply chain in Europe. After the seminars, a workshop on an invitation basis was arranged for reviewing the seminar feedback, establishing networking actions among the European players on the field, and composing future R & D initiatives. The INSAPTRANS project as a whole was a success. All the major objectives were reached within the originally planned schedule and budget. The impression from the events was that the handbook was extremely well received by the participants. The positive attitude to the seminar arrangements and programmes could be seen especially in the feedback questionnaire results.
