FEHRLopedia


The FEHRLopedia has been designed as a portal to road infrastructure knowledge.  The system links relevant content from numerous reputable sites on the internet.  Users can search for information using different selection criteria; including project type, target end user, and technical scope.  Users can also add new content and rate existing content according to the usefulness of the links.

TYROSAFE D05 - Report on analysis and findings of previous skid resistance harmonisation research projects     0 2099 14.07.2010
  It is widely accepted that poor skid resistance on road surfaces is related to an increased risk of accidents, especially in wet conditions. If a more consistent approach to skid resistance policies is to be encouraged across Europe, then greater consistency of measurement is also needed, which might be achieved by harmonising the various techniques currently used in different countries. Also, some form of harmonisation is needed to meet the requirements of CEN for future work on test metho ...[more]

TYROSAFE D02 Report on Dissemination Strategy     3 6249 15.07.2010
  Road surfaces play a major role in road safety. This knowledge varies across the EU. In some EU countries where the importance of skidding resistance has been recognised there has been a rise in traffic safety records. The TYROSAFE project has the ambition to raise awareness and share knowledge of the importance and contribution of skidding resistance, suggest harmonised systems of comparing skidding resistance as well as identify interdependencies of skidding resistance with other important cha ...[more]
TYROSAFE D04 - Report on state-of-the-art of test methods     0 2118 14.07.2010
  Road safety is closely related to road skid-resistance: accident statistics show that low skid resistance leads to increased risk of accidents. Countries have developed skid policies for the monitoring of road networks and the acceptance of new works and the policies typically rely on specialised equipment to measure the key properties of skid resistance and texture depth. For the sake of simplicity, the output of the test devices is typically reduced to one descriptor for the property measured. ...[more]
TYROSAFE D06 - Report on policies and standards concerning skid resistance, rolling resistance and noise emissions     0 1993 14.07.2010
  Increasing traffic and decreasing resources demand sustainable management of road traffic infrastructure. To assure nationwide or even EU-wide uniform levels of certain road surface parameters, policies have been issued that set limits on the levels of these parameters: upper limits (in the case of noise) or lower limits (in the case of skid resistance). To achieve these levels, different strategies have been developed – and these strategies differ throughout Europe and can even vary withi ...[more]
TYROSAFE D07 - Report on state-of-the-art of test surfaces for skid resistance     0 2123 14.07.2010
  Many different devices have been developed to measure skid resistance or road surface friction. They all assess skid resistance by measuring friction between rubber and the wet road surface in some way. However, there is no absolute value of skid resistance against which a measuring device can be compared. While it is possible to make test surfaces or identify in-service roads that have levels of skid resistance within a certain range, it is not possible to tell in advance what the actual skid ...[more]
TYROSAFE D09 - Roadmaps and implementation plan for harmonised skid resistance measurement methods     0 2106 14.07.2010
  The TYROSAFE Project is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) in the Seventh EU Framework Programme and aims at coordinating and preparing for European harmonisation and optimisation of the assessment and management of essential tyre/road interaction parameters to increase safety and support the greening of European road transport. Work Package 2 (of four technical work packages) focussed on the harmonisation of skid resistance measurement techniques. Its ultimate objective was to arrive a ...[more]
TYROSAFE D10 - Report on different parameters influencing skid resistance, rolling resistance and noise emissions     0 2139 15.07.2010
  The TYROSAFE Project is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) in the Seventh EU Framework Programme. The project is aimed at coordinating and preparing for European harmonisation and optimisation of the assessment and management of essential tyre/road interaction parameters, to increase safety and support the greening of European road transport. This work is being carried out in six work packages (WP), as follows: 􀂃 WP1: Policies of EU countries for skid resistance / rolling res ...[more]
TYROSAFE D12 - Report on future research areas for environmental effects A summary of the environmental impacts of tyre/road surface interaction and the identification of future research areas     0 2108 14.07.2010
  The project TYROSAFE (Tyre and Road surface Optimisation for Skid resistance And Further Effects) is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Seventh Framework Programme. The project is addressing the lack of awareness of the importance and contribution of skid resistance to safety, the lack of harmonised systems for comparing skid resistance (even within member states), and the concern over conflicts with other important characteristics of road surfaces. The project, which began ...[more]
