  • 10. 10 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Challenge A Research Questions A.1 Next generation predictive models for infrastructure performance and deterioration, including updating leaps in current models. Advanced predictive infrastructure performance processes  To accommodate the performance of current and novel materials and/or design and construction techniques, as well as different conditions (such as different climatic and/or traffic conditions), a better prediction of how infrastructure assets will perform is needed.  This requires the development and integration of performance and deterioration models into asset management systems.  The role of advanced accelerated testing techniques to complement such models should be considered. Topics: level of scoping
  • 11. 11 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions B.1 Surface repair methods. B.2 Strengthening for increased bearing capacity. B.3 Extending the capacity of road infrastructure by geometric modification. B.4 Novel materials for increased durability and lifespan of new road infrastructures. B.5 Rapid, non‐intrusive construction and maintenance systems and techniques. Enhanced durability and life-time extension  Extending the life‐time of infrastructure contributes to reducing both resource use and congestion.  Materials and techniques that provide the cost‐effective upgrading and rehabilitation of infrastructures will be developed.  This could include maintenance equipment, coating and/or strengthening materials as well as the systems for retrofitting components. Challenge B Topics: level of scoping
  • 12. 12 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions C.1 Performance indicators &systematic design for quality in the production phase. C.2 Next generation testing and monitoring in the exploitation stage. Rapid and non-destructive methods for routine quality and performance checks of materials and construction.  Traditionally, on‐site controls of materials, mixes, compaction and other pavement and structure characteristics have been based on single‐point, partly or fully destructive measurements.  Innovative methods that result in a step‐change will be developed that replace these tests.  This could include self‐monitoring materials and equipment (e.g. robotics), non‐intrusive observation techniques or other methods of ensuring quality and performance control more safely, quickly and/or to a higher degree of accuracy and precision.  The demonstration of the benefits in comparison to existing standards and specifications is needed. Challenge C Topics: level of scoping
  • 13. 13 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions D.1 Rapid repair, maintenance, retrofitting and revamping. Keeping freight routes open through zero-intrusive maintenance  Projects will focus on novel products/techniques with the specific objective of ensuring reliable corridors for heavy freight, also during infrastructure maintenance.  This will provide systems and techniques that better cope with increased heavy‐vehicle volumes.  It could provide ways of overcoming current limitations on infrastructure usage, coping with bottlenecks and, where necessary, include links with other modes.  Specific attention may be given to the challenges of infrastructure maintenance in heavily freight‐used sections where alternative routes are not practical.  Robotic techniques, prefabrication and the use of adaptive/temporary structures can be considered. Challenge D Topics: level of scoping
  • 14. 14 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions E.1 Next generation of weather‐resistant materials for road infrastructure. E.2 Weather resilience in design, construction and repair. E.3 Real time observation of critical weather events. Ensuring infrastructure performance under all weather conditions  Novel materials and techniques will be developed and demonstrated that allow roads to provide full service under wide‐ranging weather conditions.  These might include materials that are highly resistant to cold weather (e.g. freeze‐thaw), survive extended flooding and other extreme events.  Techniques and processes that reduce the adverse impacts of snow, icing, flooding, wind or heat effects can also be considered. Challenge E Topics: level of scoping
  • 15. 15 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions F.1 Eco‐balanced design. F.2 Energy neutral operations. Resource and energy efficiency in road construction and maintenance (Eco- design)  Techniques and systems may be developed that allow considerably lower environmental impact during the construction and maintenance of infrastructure.  This will focus on processes that do not compromise the required performance and affordability, whilst reducing resource use, energy consumption, water pollution, etc. Challenge F Topics: level of scoping
  • 16. 16 (05/05/2014) UNIÓN EUROPEA Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) Una manera de hacer Europa Research Questions G.1 Advanced techniques and procedures for reuse, recycling and substitution. G.2 Labelling for re‐use and re‐cycling. Virgin material reduction by substitution or recycling  The development of innovative approaches to utilising advanced materials and techniques in products/services will result in a reduction in the usage of virgin materials and/or the maximization of the recycling of waste and end‐of‐life materials.  This could include the application of material processing techniques or additives which require the use of substantially less existing materials or which enable the use of substitute materials currently deemed as inadequate by enhancing their quality and performance characteristics.
