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.

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.

WIFAS - The Assessment of social impacts of funding programmes that support research in the mobility of people and goods
The aim of the WIFAS study is to develop a conceptually and empirically sound model to capture the social effects and/or impacts caused by subsidy programmes –Thus, by working out appropriated indicators and by conceiving a rating system which is suitable fort he analysis of a variety of impact dimensions, with special emphasis on ecological effects.

In pro:motion, methods from social sciences are applied in order to identify homogeneous groups of shared mobility-related information needs and to extract appropriate group-related arguments (e.g. health, environment, costs, image, adventure) in order to create incentives for active mobility.

The project “Querdenken quer denken” (Creative Thinking on Crazy Ideas) includes, besides a scientific support for the projects that receive the support in the currently open call for person’s mobility, an analysis of whether and to what extent existing financial instruments consider ideas, concepts, and implementation as well as perspective that reaches beyond the borders of specialized disciplines.

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.

RELSKG - Developement of a simplified method of calculations for noise protection walls with complex geometry
The aim of the project was to determine correction factors for noise barriers with complex geometries to be used in the ray-tracing method based on numerical simulations with the boundary element method. The results of the simulations were validated by measurements. Complex geometries of the noise barriers included barriers with more than one refraction edge and curved geometry. The expected correction factors allow the implementation of the results in standard calculation software used in practice.
