STEAMSURF is a project exploring the use of steam as a source for surface modification of steel. Project is funding by the Den Dansk Maritime Fond.



Project partners are DTU and Danish Technologica Institute. Aim of the project is to develop surface cleaning and modification methods for steel using the power of steam for applications related to ships and other structures. 


Project will focus on developing the necessary instrumentation, surface modification methods, and optimization.
