Low-noise road surfaces are recognized as a cost-effective tool for traffic noise abatement. The best performance can be achieved by optimizing surface texture and porosity. That way, a bottom line of a 3dB lifetime average reduction with respect to ordinary asphalt has been reached. Any progress must resort to another noise-relevant characteristic i.e. elasticity by which the noise due to tyre v ...

Bridge Safety Monitoring (BRIDGEMON)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2014,

Much of the world’s bridges are old and need to be periodically repaired or replaced. However, premature replacement wastes money and non-renewable resources. BridgeMon is led by three SMEs who are working to extend the lives of existing bridges. They will develop bridge monitoring technologies to prove they are safe and can be kept in service for longer, thus ensuring more sustainable road asset ...

Smart Maintenance and Analysis of Transport Infrastructure (SMART RAIL)

Start date: Sep 1, 2011, End date: Aug 31, 2014,

Europe needs a safe and cost effective transport network to encourage movement of goods and people within the EU and towards major markets in the East. This is central to European transport, economic and environmental policy. Many parts of Europe’s rail network were constructed in the mid 19th century long before the advent of modern construction standards. Historic levels of low investment, poor ...
