Research interests

Dr. Alois Vorwagner (PHD in Civil Engineering) is since 2014 Thematic Coordinator in the AIT Competence Unit Transport Infrastructure Technologies. As Team Leader group consisting of 17 scientist and research engineers, he focuses on infrastructure topics, such as bridge engineering, structural dynamics, ground vibration, seismic engineering, structural health monitoring and Life Cycle assessment. He is expert in senior project Management, and research activities in concrete engineering, structural dynamics, developing load models, structural health monitoring, retrofitting and strengthening techniques and author of more than 80 scientific publications. He is currently working scientifically on life cycle and structural safety of infrastructures and bridges (assessing the impact of new types of vehicles truck platoons, high speed trains), various railway projects dealing with predictive maintenance (e.g. developing tools to update fatigue assessment of steel railway bridges using bridge monitoring data to extend service life).


He represents AIT in different associations (FIB International Federation for Structural Concrete, EURNEX the EUropean rail Research Network of Excellence, IABSE International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering…) and standardization committees and is national Chair for IABSE -Austria and OGE. He is also an expert in developing business models for various technological applications in the transport and infrastructure industries.
