The objective of the present study was to find how well a group of selected luminance-based metrics predict reported visual discomfort from daylight glare in spatial conditions that differ from the conditions where metrics tend to developed and validated for. An empirical study involving the assessment of visual discomfort from glare by n=50...

The calculation of field-of-view luminance based metrics for visual discomfort from glare evaluation in real scenes via HDR (High Dynamic Range) luminance capture does generally require the use of wide view fisheye lenses. This paper presents an easy to implement and low-cost method to estimate a fisheye lens’ total field-of view and projection...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is an innovative material which, due to the special material composition and the addition of fibres, exhibits a controlled microcracking behaviour under tensile stresses. As such it might be a promising material for improvement of durability of concrete structures.<br/>An experimental study was...

In the Netherlands, approximately 150 prestressed T-beam bridges with cast-in-between decks and mainly built in the sixties are still in service. Upon assessment, the prestressed beams often do not fulfil the design codes requirements, whereas upon inspection, they show no signs of distress. For the assessment, additional load transfer...

As the existing bridge stock is aging, improved assessment methods such as proof load testing become increasingly important. Proof load testing involves large loads, and as such the risk for the structure and personnel can be significant. To capture the structural response, extensive measurements are applied to proof load tests. Stop criteria,...

Modern society and infrastructure are facing an increased demand for fast construction. A number of viaducts are aged and will need to be replaced in near future. When considering this replacement task, lightweight, slender bridge is the solution. Dead load reduction and high-strength to weight ratio are the main advantages when using the...

The bridges built during the development of the Dutch road network after the Second World War are reaching their originally devised service life. A large subset of the Dutch bridge stock consists of reinforced concrete slab bridges. This bridge type often rates insufficient according to the recently introduced Eurocodes. Therefore, more suitable...

Proof load testing can be a suitable method to show that a bridge can carry the required loads from the code without distress. This paper addresses the preparation, execution, and analysis of a proof load test on a four-span reinforced concrete solid slab bridge, viaduct de Beek. The bridge has one lane in each direction, but was restricted to a...

The number of applications with thin flat, curved or double-curved elements often produced as architectural elements for façades is rising fast. If the repetition factor of the elements is limited, which is often the case in free-form architecture, the high number of unique moulds makes this type of architecture economically less viable....

As the bridge stock in The Netherlands and Europe is ageing, various methods to analyse existing bridges are bemg studied. Proof loading of bridges is an option to study the capacity when crucial information about the structure is lacking. This information could be related to the material (for example, the effect of alkali-silica reaction on the...

A majority of the bridges and viaducts in the Netherlands were built in the sixties and seventies of the last century and many of them will need to be replaced in the near future due to technical or functional reasons. This is a replacement issue, faced by many countries worldwide. But what about the concrete structures? Should we replace them...

Proof loading has been considered as an effective approach in the assessment of existing concrete bridges. This paper presents a study of acoustic emission measurement in a proof loading of an ASR affected concrete slab bridge (Zijlweg bridge). Because of the uncertainty on the mechanical properties of the ASR affected concrete. The attenuation...

This paper presents an experimental research program aiming at assessing the current code provisions of vmin. A large test series was carried out, by varying the reinforcement ratio and loading conditions, the minimum average shear stress that can cause shear failure of a specimen with different depth, concrete strength is determined. The three...

Assessment of the capacity of the existing infrastructures has become more relevant in the recent years. With regard to the concrete bridges, the shear capacity of a large amount of existing concrete slab bridges reinforced with plain (smooth) bars are of concern. However, it was argued that the shear formula that is currently adapted in the...

This paper presents the Acoustic Emission (AE) measurement of several tests carried out on reinforced concrete beams sawn from a 50 years old concrete bridge – Ruytenschildt bridge. The purpose of these tests is to provide additional information to the already executed in-situ load testing on the bridge. In addition to the AE measurement...

Forensic Structural Engineering is the professional practice of determining the cause(s) of a structural failure, often with the aim to lay out a technical basis to identify the responsible parties for a failure. Although Forensic Structural Engineering is given as course at several universities in USA and UK, at many institutions it is no...

The strain-hardening behaviour of cementitious composites is the result of a synergistic behaviour of the cement matrix and fibres in a cracked cross-section. The distribution and orientation of the fibres are essential in order to obtain such favourable tensile behaviour. Strain-hardening composites can be applied and are especially useftil in...

A large number of concrete structures, that is built in the sixties and seventies of the twentieth century, need to be re-evaluated. It should be judged whether their capacity is still sufficient for the increased traffic loads. Acoustic emission (AE) is a non-destructive technique that can possibly be used to get a better insight in the...

Urban Heat Islands in cities in the Netherlands are likely to increase due to a predicted climate change and the continuously increasing expansion and densification of cities, In contrast to rural areas cities are warmer because their paved surfaces retain heat, buildings block cooling winds and the lack of vegetation and water reduces...
