Stabilisering av humusförorenad sand med hydrauliska och puzzolaniska bindemedel: resultat av förprovning och vägförsök: tillsättning av flygaska vid cementstabilisering av väg 1175

Laboratory tests, to treat a sand, contaminated with an active organic substance, with different hydraulic and puzzolanic binders, are described. Portland cement gave poor results, also with activating substances. Better results were obtained with a slag binder, activated with waste gypsum, calcium chloride, or a cement-fly ash binder.

A blended cement, containing fly ash, was used to strengthen road 1175 with a plant-mixed base-course. Because of the poor immediate stability, tests were made to mix in additional fly ash (a wet, conditional material). Good results were obtained and it was possible to decrease the cement content.

A driving licence withdrawal can have major consequences in everyday life

A withdrawn driving licence can have negative consequences for a person’s ability to shape their own life. A study from VTI investigates how individuals with visual field loss have been affected by no longer being permitted to drive.


Measuring sleepiness – a challenge for researchers

Driver fatigue has been a research area at VTI for several years, and the researchers have studied various aspects such as the working hours of professional drivers, driver behaviour, accident risks, and the design of warning systems. They are now moving...


Knowledge in the fight against microplastics from road traffic

The Government has commissioned VTI to develop and disseminate knowledge regarding the emission of microplastics from road traffic.


How to make autonomous vehicles coexist with other traffic

The road infrastructure must be prepared for self-driving vehicles – especially in the beginning when the concepts are still new. Researchers are contributing to this through CoEXist, an EU-funded research project in which VTI participates as the largest...


Electric roads: ‘Standardisation is an important factor for a future European transport system’

VTI employees recently arranged a workshop in Brussels on the standardisation of Electric Road Systems (ERS). ERS has become increasingly relevant as a possible method for reducing the transport sector's environmental impacts, especially in terms of climate...
