The Netherlands, like many countries in this world, face a challenging task in managing civil infrastructures. The management of vital infrastructures, like road bridges, is necessary to ensure their safe and reliable functioning. The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management in the Netherlands manages the structures in the...

Microelectronics have pervaded our lives for the past fifty years, with massive penetration into health, mobility, safety and security, communications, education, entertainment and virtually every aspect of human lives. The main technology drivers that enabled this expansion are miniaturization and integration. The combination of these two has...

Wind is becoming an ever more important source of renewable energy: installed wind turbine power now stands at 60,000 MW worldwide, providing 0.6% of world electricity demand. Still it is important that the cost of wind energy is brought down further, which means that wind turbines must be designed to be exactly as strong as necessary, but no...

Critical Infrastructures are the arteries and veins of Western, urbanized societies. The services and products provided by these large-scale, complex systems are considered essential. However, in recent years, more and more new problems seem to crop op after these infrastructures were opened up to market forces. What has happened in these...

A variety of factors is governing the operational conditions of jack-up platforms. The platforms are moved to different locations, which are causing changes in water depth, environmental and seabed conditions, drilling depths, payload etc. Insight should be gained in how the different factors affect the lifetime in order to be able to make a...

Two aspects of investment in generation capacity in liberalized electricity markets are investigated: the question of whether investment will be sufficient to meet society's goals for the reliability of electricity supply (generation adequacy) and the question of how to coordinate investment in electricity generation capacity in a competitive...

This report studies clamping phenomena in placed revetments on the Dutch dikes. One of the reasons of placing stones is that the stability of the single stones increases. Pull–out tests on single stones show a strength up to 10 times the single stone weight. In present standardized design methods for placed revetments there is no significant...

With the increasing number of applications in practice, the demand for standardised test methods and design rules for Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) arises. Test methods need to be practical, which means that they have to be relatively cheap and simple to carry out. Design models should be easy to use and reliable. This paper presents a...

In most text books on Plasticity Theory a reference is made to the famous tests performed by Stiissi and Kollbrunner in 1935. The test object was a continuous beam on four supports, loaded by a concentrated point load halfway the central span. According to a straight forward application of the theory of plasticity the load carrying capacity of...

Le Huy Thang, T. (author)
In designing marine and coastal structures there always exists a considerable uncertainty, especially regarding the reliability of the data to be used. This is primarily due to the stochastic nature of sea waves - one of the most complex, volatile, pertinacious and uncomprehensible of nature's forces. Indeed, even if using all the available...
