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.

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. 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).

CinderRailer – Network of polygonal transport for the combination of slag and gypsum transport with the same containers

The project involved developing innovative logistics chains in rail transport for bulk goods such as granulated slag, gypsum, gravel and substitute fuels, which has previously ruled out the use of the same equipment.

RAKO Donaukanal – Bike-transport-combination Danube canal – modern city logistics by water and bike

RAKO-Donaukanal analyses how urban freight transport can be organsised in a sustainable way by using a combination of urban waterways and cargo bikes. A boat is used to transport goods along the Donaukanal into the city centre and cargo bikes take over the last mile distribution.

GüMoS - sustainable mobility of goods in cities - guideline for RTI projects

An intensive discussion about freight transport in cities is ongoing since the 1980ies. The originally chosen city logistic approaches investigated and propagated isolated transport consolidations within freight transport centres. Today, solutions have to focus on a much wider approach. GöMoS takes this into consideration.

EFLOG - Potential of the services of new vehicle technologies to impact on the offerings of logistics service providers

The purpose of the study was to link the performance obtained from respective drive technologies, which are in various stages of their technological development up to ready-to-use models, of utility vehicles to the services offered by logistics providers and freight carriers to their customers.

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

Starting out from the programme goals and specified logistic trends the AIDA-F study aimed to identify possible approaches in order to activate potential for interdisciplinary interactions and to anticipate their importance for tommorrow´s goods transport. To this end, it carved out the areas of intervention for organisational innovation: adapting the system architecture of goods mobility, smart use of technologies and integral methods of recording, analysing and optimising freight movements.

FCH Projekte - Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Cluster Austria - company specific roadmap

The aim of the project was to develop company-specific roadmaps dealing with the topic „Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies". These documents provide detailed information for the three research-pillars, research, demonstration and energy, which were subdivided in a short-time (until 2015) and a mid-time timeline (until 2020).

HyDie, Dual-Fuel-Bus - Hydrogen-Diesel Dual fuel drive for fast reduction of CO² emissions in public transport

In an 18-month research project an effective conversion of an urban-bus typical diesel engine to the hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel operation was, for the first time worldwide, analyzed. Among other parameters, the CO² reduction potential (based on the substitution of the diesel fuel with hydrogen), the diesel-combustion-typical pollutants emission reduction, and powertrain‘s efficiency were measured in order to evaluate the advantages of this technology.

kids2move – Integrative networking system for the optimization of accompanied routes

Traffic behaviour as much as the choice of transport mode, are already formed in the early childhood by the social environment. Here, the caregivers inherit a significant role model function. Especially every-day routes like those from or to kindergarten, to school and to leisure time activities influence the approach to mobility and the actual traffic behaviour.
