Rice husk ash is a promising pozzolanic material produced from rice husk burning and has significant potential a sustainable replacement for cement in construction and ground improvement applications. In this study the effect of burning conditions on the ash reactivity and its potential for soil stabilization applications have been investigated...

In the Bloemendalerpolder two test embankments were constructed in 2010 to study the long term behaviour of embankments on very soft soils with respect to settlement and lateral pile loading resulting from horizontal soil deformations. A detailed description of the test embankments, performed soil investigation, laboratory tests and...

This paper demonstrates the use of a geotechnical drum centrifuge in the calibration of a model to predict the peak punch-through penetration (qpeak) resistance of a spudcan on sand overlying clay. A series of loose sand overlying clay tests was performed and combined with an existing database of tests performed on dense sand overlying clay. The...

The presence of micropollutants, especially pharmaceuticals, in wastewater has become a significant concern to both the water treatment industry as well as consumers. A new method of treatment was developed to curb this problem. The use of polymers as flocculants and combining them with materials helped to reduce the concentration of these...

The Marker Wadden project aims to improve the ecosystem of Lake Markermeer (The Netherlands) by constructing a wetland with sediment from the lake. Sediment is dredged from the bed, and the resulting slurries are pumped into the project area. During this process, segregation and oxidation of the sediment may occur. The native sediment...

This thesis entitled "Modelling of cyclic degradation - Development of a cyclic accumulation model and the application to a gravity based foundation" presents a new soil model to analyse the behaviour of undrained soils subjected to cyclic loading. Cyclic loading on offshore support structures for wind-turbines results in complex design...

The significant growth in offshore wind activities in boulder clay areas requires suitable cable protection solutions. It is desirable to create a trench prior installation of the cable in order to guarantee the target depth of burial. Modern equipment of available on the market can be refined in order to create a reduced footprint, both...

To protect pipelines in Arctic regions they are often buried in trenches, effectively preventing damage by ice gouging. When trenching is performed in Arctic soil, subsea permafrost may be encountered at water depths up to 100 m, mainlywhile excavating clay soil. Frozen clay is an anisotropic inhomogeneous material with a tensile strength and...

Thermo-active structures, such as energy piles, are used to store and extract heat energy from soil. In areas with seasonal freezing and thawing, such infrastructure is subjected to changes in the soil structure and, consequently, the soil strength. This research investigated the influence of repeated freeze-thaw (FT) cycles and different...

This research aims to provide an understanding of the behaviour of co-disposed coarse (sand) and fine (clay and silt) tailings when discharged into an onshore dredge pond, and the dependence of that behaviour on the sediment composition. This understanding contributes to the ultimate goal of finding a method by which fine tailings can be...

As the demand for renewable energy is constantly rising, more offshore wind farms are being built at sea to meet European targets towards sustainable energy transition. Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus was purposely-built to transport and install foundations of offshore wind turbines. To ensure that the vessel remains competitive...

This version of the thesis only covers the literature study. The results analysis and conclusion of the thesis are confidential. Pipelines in arctic waters are at risk of being damaged by gouging ice masses. To protect these pipelines, they can be buried in trenches. When trenching in arctic clayey soil, sub sea permafrost can be encountered....

De Dienst Weg- en Waterbouw van Ri jk.swaterstaat en de Sectie Geotechniek. van de Technische universiteit Delft zijn gezamenlijk een onderzoek gestart naar de stabiliteit en het deformatiegedrag van weg- en di jklichamen. Daar veldonderzoek kostbaar en zeer tijdrovend zou zijn, is besloten om modelonderzoek te doen in de geotechnische...

Clay particles, known for their adhesive properties, are commonly encountered in underwater soils. When producing large quantities of sand by means of dredging, fines are a byproduct and cause important viscosity changing effects altering the sand settling behavior. Much is already known in this field but knowledge lacks in the area where sand...

Erosion processes are divided in two parts, whereas first process is detachment process and second process is transport of detached soil. The main function of grass cover is to avoid detachment. Therefore certain strength is necessary to execute this assignment. Resistance of grass covers are affected by several parameters. The influencing...

Environmental awareness and sustainable development have been popular themes over the last few years. To improve dikes along the estuaries in Zeeland (The Netherlands) where a high foreland with natural areas of salt marshes is present, alternatives to stone revetments are examined. From a natural and aesthetic point of view, a slope covered...

Presented here is the numerical investigation on seismic soil-structure interaction applying features of a rather non-conventional earthquake design. The examination focuses on the Groningen site conditions which lately experienced an induced-type of earthquake. A unique situation calls for a suitable seismic design for both existing and new...

Around 55% of The Netherlands is protected by flood defences like dikes. Flood defences must meet requirements which are based on an allowed flood probability. Safety assessments are performed to check whether flood defences meet these requirements. Uncertainties are explicitly included in safety assessments. Uncertainty in soil behaviour is one...
