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.

IND4LOG4 - Industry 4.0 and its impacts on the transport logistics
The proposed study analysed the impact of Industry 4.0 on the transport and logistics sector, also with regard to the foreign trade links of the Austrian economy. This analysis therefore offers a sound basis for the formulation of differentiated economic and transport policy recommendations as well as strategic recommendations.

MANEUVER - Development of avoidance measures for misconduct on railway crossings with the aid of the traffic psychology
The objective of the project was to develop cost-effective measures (education, awareness-raising, roadside infrastructure) with the help of experts and road traffic participants to reduce misdemeanour at level crossings. Traffic psychological research methods will be adopted.

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.

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.

MobLab Study – Begleitstudie zur Vorbereitung urbaner Mobilitätslabore
The MobLab Study supports the exploration of emerging urban mobility laboratories in Austria, in order to reduce the gap between the research results of the rigid environment of a laboratory and the implementation practice by offering a targeted accompanying of new Living Labs as user centred innovation settings as well as an evaluation of the gained insights.

SynArea – Synergetic area coverage by public transport and low-threshold short trip-private transport
The aim of the project is the coverage of rural and/or suburban regions with multimodal services, which are more attractive for customers and economically more efficient than conventional public transport, accessed by foot, bike&ride or park&ride, and at the same time ecologically and socially more sustainable, than the sole use of motorised individual transport.

LARA - Low noise tyres for quiet streets
The objective of the project was to apply the EU regulations 2009/661/EC (contains new tyre noise limits) and 2009/1222/EC (noise labelling of tyres) to Austrian conditions in order to find the actual feasible noise reduction, as well as suggestions of how to adapt the Austrian calculation basis.

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.
