The motorway A10 is routed over the Havelkanal in the western part of the Berliner Ring, a perimeter road, close to the small town of Brieselang. Due to a constructional fault of the bearings the replacement of the old bridge became necessary. Considering all economic and design aspects, a network arch bridge with radial net was chosen as most suitable solution. The paper discusses aspects of conceptual design, tendering and contracting as well as the construction work of the new bridge completed in November 2011. © Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co.

Organic soils are extremely heterogeneous and widely variable in contrast with most granular, silty and clayey soils. Safe and efficient design of subsoil improvement measures in such difficult organic soils therefore requires extensive knowledge of their properties and their mechanical behaviour. So far there has been a lack of complete and cohesive information about organic soil behaviour in the relevant literature. This paper details the main laboratory test results obtained from approx. 650 mostly undisturbed samples of peat and gyttja taken in the course of several infrastructure projects in the State of Brandenburg. Evaluation of the test results considered soil classification parameters, stress and time dependent deformation behaviour in addition to rate dependent shear behaviour. Data from cone penetration (CPT) and field vane (FVT) tests were also included in the interpretation of results. A significantly extended organic soil classification scheme is presented here based on these results. The text also takes a detailed look at a large number of specific problems that are encountered when conducting organic soil investigations. © 2011 Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co.

The objective of the DRIVE C2X Integrated Project is to carry out comprehensive assessment of cooperative systems through Field Operational Tests in various places in Europe in order to verify their benefits and to pave the way for market implementation. This general objective is split into four major technical objectives:\nCreate a harmonised Europe-wide testing environment for cooperative systems\nCoordinate the tests carried out in parallel throughout the DRIVE C2X community\nEvaluate cooperative systems\nPromote cooperative driving.\nThe proposal fully responds to EC requirements and the Call 6 contents on Field Operational Tests.\nDuring the past decade, researchers have been working on cooperative systems worldwide in numerous research projects. Tentative results suggest that communication between vehicles and vehicles and infrastructure can substantially improve sustainable transportation. There is today a general understanding of the benefits of cooperative systems in terms of traffic safety and efficiency, but so far these systems have been tried out in small scale experiments only. There is no proof of their benefits yet with many communicating vehicles used in variable conditions on roads.\nThe work proposed builds strongly on previous and on-going work on cooperative systems, which are now considered to be mature enough for large-scale field operational tests. The Europe-wide testing community envisaged for DRIVE C2X comprises of six test sites in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, France and Finland. Essential activities in this project are the testing methodology and evaluation of the impact of cooperative driving functions on users, environment and society. In addition to impacts, other important areas of testing are technical functionality and robustness of the systems also in adverse conditions. The user feedback and the results from technical tests enable the creation of realistic business models for the following market introduction.
