The Netherlands is prone to flooding as more than a quarter of the country lies under sea level. To combat flooding and ensure that the country remains dry structures such are levees and dikes have been installed. However, older water retaining structures are more than ever failing the stringent safety standard assessments. These older...

Crane hardstands serve as crucial platforms for supporting heavy lifting equipment and ensuring operational efficiency. However, crane hardstands are not infinitely stiff and will deform upon loading. Uneven loading during wind turbine installation will result in differential deformation of the crane hardstand, causing the crane to tilt. A small...

This thesis describes the investigation of the lateral monopile response in weak rock and the effect of a zone of crushed rock that is induced by driven installation. The goal of the investigation is to study the impact of the weaker zone around a monopile on the lateral response. The thesis focuses on the modelling of a monopile in a finite...

Terps are artificial dwelling mounds mostly found in the northern regions of the Netherlands, built to provide safe ground against water in such areas affected by flooding, storm surges, and high tides, before the development of dikes. In this thesis, the stability of these terps was evaluated via FEM models and analyses performed on PLAXIS....

For supporting Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT), monopiles are currently the most common foundations. The role of a foundation is to transfer safely the loading to the ground. The wind and the wave loads are considered cyclic because they repetitively apply on the OWT. The North Sea is sand dominated in many areas. During cyclic loading, permanent...

The stability of breakwaters in seismically active areas is not always guaranteed. A new approach to model a breakwater subjected to an earthquake is with PM4Sand. The goal of this research is to find if breakwaters subjected to earthquakes can be correctly modelled with PM4Sand.<br/>To investigate PM4Sand a breakwater subjected to an earthquake...

Currently, the settlements of high-rise buildings are calculated based on two methods. The single pile settlements (s1), are generated due to mobilised shaft friction and pile tip resistance. These settlements are determined with analytical methods (i.e. NEN 9997-1, 2017). Settlements related to pile group behaviour in soil layers below pile tip...

Throughout the years the requirements of sheet pile walls have changed. Therefore reassessment of these structure's reliability is of importance. In this thesis, Bayesian updating is used for the reliability updating task. Updating processes require measurements of the structure under known conditions. Although for practical and economical...

The earthquake-induced liquefaction is a high-risk phenomenon for dredging industries, which need to set strict requirements in order to avoid potential disastrous effects for the project. Different types of liquefaction exist which can be triggered over a wide range of soil types and for different loading conditions. The liquefaction triggering...
