A new connection between a precast abutment wall and a cast-in-place foundation was developed for rapid construction of bridge abutments. The connection was developed at the University of Iceland with assistance provided by structural designers, a precast concrete fabricator, and the Icelandic...
Håkan Carlsson is the laboratory manager for measurement technology and workshop at VTI. His role gives him responsibility for the activities, and he normally doesn't have time to take part in the practical work. However, there is one exception, and that is proof load testing for airfield bearing...
In recent years, there have been a number of serious road accidents due to motorists skidding off the road. The reason is believed to be that the country's roads are becoming increasingly smooth. VTI has investigated the cause of the problem in a pilot study. New designs of studded tyres, a rise...
In VTI's road laboratory, test specimens of so-called ‘green’ asphalt are displayed on a bench. The asphalt is black in colour, but its properties make it better for the environment and climate than established asphalt mixtures, hence the name green asphalt. For example, the asphalt may last...
Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency set a project to assess the feasibility of Finnish motorway section between Helsinki and Tampere on E12 highway for operation of SAE Level 3-4 automated vehicles, to propose a framework for service level classification for them and to prepare a proposal for...
The oldest is the test road machine, which was built during World War II. It was initially used to find better solutions for gravel road constructions. Then came asphalt. The concrete coffers for the gravel road construction were turned upside down(!), and then the machine could be used to improve...
The streets of the future have high demands to meet, in terms of both technical design and construction. Researchers from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) are looking for smart solutions to meet four megatrends: Urbanisation, digitalisation, electrification and...
