  In 1997 Finland and Sweden jointly invested in a Heavy Vehicle Simulator, HVS, from South Africa. After the first period in Finland the HVS-NORDIC was moved to Sweden and VTI in Linkoping in September 1998. A program for research co-operation in the area of accelerated pavement testing has been agreed between Finland and Sweden covering the years 19972003. The general objective of the research co-operation is to learn more about pavement response and pavement performance. A second but most important objective is to learn about the HVS-machine itself and the way it simulate traffic and deteriorate the pavements and how this is related to real pavement performance.

The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
