Study of interface behavior has been the primary area of focus for researchers in the field of concrete science and technology. This interface between two concrete elements becomes important for prefabricated systems, combination of precast and in-situ concrete elements, combinations of concrete cast at different times, repairs of existing...

There is a growing demand for renewable sources of energy of which wave energy conversion is one. The Ocean Falls is an oscillating water column (OWC) system invented by BAM Infraconsult b.v. This system differs from conventional OWC systems since it includes a connection tube and an adjustable back wall. The OWC system is a resonance system for...

Durban is the third largest city of South-Africa, located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The city suffers from severe floods from time to time, finding its cause in both the Indian ocean as well as the Umgeni river. The eThekwini municipality wishes a better insight in the occurrence of these floods and searches for a structural solution to...

During the past decade, durability and sustainability has become more and more important in the building industry. By using no steel reinforcement, which has with high carbon emission and is sensitivity to corrosion, the structure should have a longer life span with less maintenance and a lower carbon footprint.<br/>To get more information on...

Nowadays, precast technology is mainly used for the production of concrete shell elements. Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) milling techniques is the main production method of single or double-curved concrete elements, creating astonishing shapes with high accuracy. However, these techniques are also accompanied with high costs and large...

The Dutch Delta Approach has been set up with the aim of ensuring water safety in the Netherlands and improve it where necessary. The open connection of the Nieuwe Waterweg has become the subject of debate. So far, the Dutch Delta Approach do not take closure of the Nieuwe Waterweg into account. A group of six engineers do anticipate on the...

The present thesis has the objective to create a procedure for the automatic preliminary design of reinforced concrete structures, based on the Evolutionary Structural Optimization method (ESO). The developed algorithm performs heuristic topology optimization based on multiple criteria, in subsequent optimization cycles executed in series. In...

When engineers at Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC) used the Eurocode 2 (EC2) for the verification of flexural cracks in cross sections of immersed tunnel elements, they found out that there was more reinforcement needed for crack width limitation than for tensile strength of the reinforced concrete. This raised questions, namely whether the...

This thesis is a study on the cracking behaviour of road bases constructed with cement bound reclaimed asphalt (also known in the Netherlands as AGRAC). It is decided to focus on this material because of the few researches available on the topic although the material being widely applied, at least in the Netherlands. The<br/>goal of adding...
