Designing challenges engineers to develop both economically attractive and safe designs. This might seem a paradox, but with the application of the observational method, wherein safety is checked by real-time monitoring, economic design and safety are united. The observational method is recently successfully applied in the Netherlands during the...

A new lifting bridge is being constructed crossing the river Oude Maas in the Rotterdam harbour area in the Netherlands. Since foundation deformations of the main piers have a large influence on the performance of the superstructure, extensive deformation analyses have been performed during the design phase. In order to minimise the risks and...

Ground, building and utility deformation monitoring is a well-accepted and required practice for underground construction works in urban environments. The availability of real-time monitoring data during construction allows stakeholders to stay ahead of potential problems, to make decisions prior to damage occurrence, and ultimately to reduce...

The present work shows and discusses the GBInSAR measurements for the Ingelsberg area, where one of the most dangerous landslide of Salzburg region is located (Bad Hofgastein – Austria). It is a rockfall developing on an area of about 40000 m2 which is characterized by the outcropping of anti-dip stratified green and calc-mica schists. The...

In the preparation and construction stages of the underground car park beneath Kruisplein with diaphragm walls, risk management played an important role. After a description of the structure and the construction, the preventive measures that were invented and carried out are summarised. These relate to the organisation of the project ...

The application of the Observational Method can contribute to an economic construction process and effective geotechnical risk management. Current project management practices and control of construction works lead to unfavourable conditions of its application. Throughout the realization of infrastructure, understanding of project risks and...

Looking back over a period of 10 years of underground works, geotechnical risk management has matured and has definitively contributed to the success of geotechnical projects in Rotterdam. But, what exactly was it that made geotechnical risk management successful? Looking back, and analysing the process, 8 habits of the (geotechnical) risk...

The A2 tunnel in Maastricht has been built within a dry building pit with a maximum depth of 22 meters with sheet pile walls, suspended in a cement bentonite trench supported by struts at 2 to 4 levels. Dewatering is done by deepwells. The excavation reaches into Limestone layers so the maximum mobilized passive resistance of the sheet pile wall...

Urban areas are complicated due to the mix of man-made features and natural features. A higher level of structural information plays an important role in land cover/use classification of urban areas. Additional spatial indicators have to be extracted based on structural analysis in order to understand and identify spatial patterns or the spatial...

Modern large cities are characterized by a high building concentration, little aeration and lack of green spaces. Such characteristics create an urban climate which is different from the climate outside of cities. An example of an urban climate effect is the so-called Urban Heat Island: cities tend to be warmer than the surrounding rural areas....

Dams and dikes are both water-retaining earth embankments. These are vulnerable to internal erosion but specific differences lead to varying vulnerabilities to different types of internal erosion: • Dams are usually zoned, with potential filtering capability to arrest piping if it is initiated, while dikes are more commonly unzoned and incapable...
