CONGRATULATIONS toProfessor Kim RasmussenandDr Hao Zhangon the recent award of an ARC Linkage Project entitled "Long-span cold-formed steel portal frames" with BlueScope Lysaght as partner organisation for the period 2012-2015.

This represents an excellent achievement, which highlights the outstanding research carried out in the field of steel structures within our School and its strong links with industry. As part of this project, novel solutions will be developed for building portal frames in cold-formed steel at effectively twice the span currently available. Economies are derived from using cold-formed steel, which will benefit the end consumer and help the Australian steel industry to maintain its position as preeminent provider of innovative cold-formed steel solutions.
