The catchment of the torrent Naarn shows a high degree of forsted area and therefore a huge amount of woody debris can be mobilized during floods. Further downstream this material can cause clogging effects at culverts and bridges, as it could be seen during the flood of 2002 in the municipality of Perg. The goal of the study is to test a new filtering structure that has been developped by students within the lecture of structural exercises.

Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) uses surplus energy (night period, solar and wind) to compress and store air, which can be released later to generate energy. Pile foundations under buildings provide attractive storage space for small facilities. The performance of such piles depends mainly on the behavior of the surrounding soil under thermal and mechanical loading. In this project, we will carry out numerical simulations on the pile performance by considering such soil behavior like anisotropy, over-consolidation and creep.

Recultivation of soil wounds is a challenge in the Hohe Tauern National Park area due to the local site and climatic conditions. Sustainable greening is of particular interest not only for erosion control, but also in terms of landscape and recreational value. In recent years, ecologically accompanied greening has been carried out with varying degrees of success. The aim of this research project is to develop a guideline for greening measures in the Rudolfshütte region on the basis of test plots. The locally created test areas are the essential basis for the scientific investigations with regard to seed mixture and greening techniques.
