RAIL-SLEEPER - New impregnating agents for wooden railway sleeper

In this project products with a better toxicological profile than creosote are under examination as alternatives for the impregnation of wooden railway sleepers. The demanded key properties have to be geared to those shown by creosote: high biological efficacy, long service-life, no increase of corrosion, low conductivity of impregnated sleepers and high resistance against physical and chemical stress.

AIDA-F - Potential of interdisciplinary approaches for organizational innovations in freight transport

An awareness of the value and benefit of taking an interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of challenges facing the Mobility of Goods has only developed to a certain extent, which is why interdisciplinary results are still hard to come by. External stimuli are usually required to open up introverted specialist debates on the phenomena that occur, to motivate a collaborative accomplishment of tasks and as such to mobilise innovation processes.

New ways of expiriencing mobility through Research, Technology and Innovation

Social, economic and technological developments are placing increasingly more complex demands on the transport system and its capacity. New tech-nologies and innovations can significantly contribute to shaping sustainable mobility. They play an indispensable part in facing the major societal challenges such as climate change, scarcity of resources and demographic change and open up new economic opportunities for the transport sector, one of the most important economic branches in Austria

KV-FTI - Combined freight traffic - revealing the future potentials of research and innovation

Combined transport (CT) is an environmentally sensible and politically desired traffic, which is struggling with cost problems due to complicated supply chains. Previous innovations in CT have focused much on the development of new transhipment technologies. These innovations were very expensive and resulted in the medium term partly to a further increase in the cost of the supply chain. The intention of this study includes a redesign of the transport and business processes, the compatibility of interfaces (with orientation towards homogenization and standardization) for the individual actors and an adapted technological development of intermodal transport containers (containers, SAL, WAB).

Frame bridge – Handling instruction for the conversion from existing bridges to integral bridges

The objective of this project was the elaboration of the handling instruction for the adaptation of conventional existing bridges to integral bridges by means of a survey of the national and international literature as well as statistical examination taking essential parameters into account. In addition to the essential construction details of the integral or semi-integral bridges (e.g., frame corner and concrete hinge) the deformable slip plate will also be examined and design rules will be suggested.

Combined fibre concrete – Development of a crack-free railway sleeper through the use of a combined fiber-reinforced high-strength concrete

In practice the use of pre-stressed concrete sleepers is often accompanied by cracks-occurrence, such as longitudinal, lateral and shrinkage cracks. At the occurrence of cracks the resistance of sleepers to environmental influences is reduced.By the development of a combined fibre reinforced high-strength concrete, the risk of a formation of micro- and macro cracks can be substantially reduced, whereby the expected lifetime of concrete sleepers can increasing significantly and a costly renovation can be avoided.

PHÄLIKS - The Phenomenon of driving left on multi-lane motorways - Measures and recommendations for the rule of keeping to the right side of the road

Within this study the phenomenon of driving on the left side on motorways was described and analysed with psychological, traffic related, juridical and sociological methods. Based on these results adequate measures were developed; these should enhance or facilitate the proper compliance with the traffic rules in Austria, which is driving on the right side of the road. Experts from relevant fields of expertise and competence (traffic, landscape, sociology etc.) accompanied the whole process by giving their inputs, evaluating the results of the exploration of the driving-left issue, and prepared and optimised the practical output of the project.

OdimAk – Optimized dimensioning procedure for highway interweavings

The project ODIMAK dealt with a new capacity analysis method for multi-level intersections based on existing guidelines. Measurements of complex weaving procedures on the ASFINAG network were taken into account. A microscopic traffic simulation tool was applied to develop an analysis method for multiple weaving segments. The traffic flow model was calibrated using the previous measurements. Typical geometrical settings were defined and modeled. The simulation results are taken for regression analysis to identify suitable dimensioning procedures, which were discussed within the FSV committee on intersections.

OBESTO – Implementation of the user oriented and Life Cycle Costing approach in the Austrian design method for upper road structures

Within this project, performance-based material behaviour of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) was implemented in the Austrian design approach. Considering actual asphalt mechanic behaviour, as well as specific traffic loads and climatic conditions, the structural technical life time of road pavements with different bitumen, bitumen systems and mix design could be determined and considered in the design process. In addition, a standardized life-cycle cost analysis helped to evaluate and identify the economic differences between alternative pavement types. The results of this project should be the basis for a complete revision of the Austrian pavement design standard, RVS 03.08.63.

Safe Guarding - Potential of lateral road restraint systems on road safety capacity in the motor- and expressway network of the ASFiNAG

Run off accidents with personal injuries are the second most frequent type of accidents on the ASFiNAG road network. Road Restraints are an important instrument to reduce accident severity. For that reason the efficiency of these systems was analysed, in order to insure an efficient road maintenance regarding infrastructure costs and to reduce furthermore the severity of these accidents.
