The stability of rock engineering projects is tightly related to the mechanical behaviour of rock discontinuities. Although the mechanical behaviour of a discontinuity is often associated with shearing (sliding), experimental data have shown that it can be accompanied by more complex phenomena such as dilation and post-peak strength reduction....

Tailings dam failures are one of the most destructive phenomena in terms of the number of victims and the environmental impact generated. Over the years, different causes have been identified, with flow liquefaction being a prominent factor to consider when assessing the stability of tailings deposits. Due to the complex nature of these events,...

Numerical modelling in Geo-Engineering is used to solve complex problems by simulating, analysing, or predicting soil behaviour under certain loading and boundary conditions. The soil behaviour is simulated by constitutive models that describe the relationship between stresses and strains through a mathematical formulation. Model parameters are...

As a consequence of the difficulty to obtain complete direct information about the subsurface, and the importance of heterogeneity of soil properties in geotechnical design, a desire exists in the geotechnical community for a smarter use of the available data in common practice. The objective of this thesis is to provide a potential solution for...

In the low-lying parts of The Netherlands challenging ground conditions are often encountered. Thick layers of soft material such as peat and clay are present and pile foundations into deeper sand layers are required when objects are constructed that have to transfer significant loads to the subsurface without inducing settlement (differences)....

The Automated Parameter Determination project aims to provide advanced geotechnical models parameters from in-situ tests in a transparent and flexible process. The framework was initially developed for coarse-grained soils, and it was needed to be expanded to all types of common soils. This report presents the expansion of the APD database to...

As the construction of sub-aerial and submarine geotechnical structures increase in amount, rate and size, so do their associated risks. Often, with use constitutive models, finite element analyses (FEAs) are performed in order to identify and mitigate these risks. NorSand, which is a consti- tutive model based on critical state soil mechanics...

The determination of geotechnical parameters from in-situ tests heavily relies on the use of empirical correlations relating field measurements to soil properties. A large number of these correlations can be found across the literature, each of them yielding a different outcome for the parameter value. This results in a high variability of the...

Recent development have caused that the policy regarding the installation of onshore wind turbines on embankments has changed to 'Yes, provided that ...' in the Netherlands. (Simplified) approaches are available within professional practice to analyse the risk of liquefaction, but are considered to be conservative. In this thesis, a methodology...

The current plan of bottom to top bottom sublevel stoping for the Kearney gold vein at the Cavanacaw mine, Omagh, Northern Ireland may not be the most effective in terms of stability. The Kearney ore body is a narrow vein gold deposit, which has been previously exploited through an open pit and is currently being developed as an underground...

In situ tests, such as the cone penetration test (CPT), are a popular tool for geotechnical engineers because they are an efficient and economical method for routine site characterisation, soil profiling and estimation of constitutive properties of soil. The main problem with interpreting in situ test results is the large amount of empiricism...

Since the exploitation of wind as a renewable energy resource, jack-up vessels equipped with more than three independent legs are increasingly employed to transport and install the components of offshore wind turbines. By lowering the movable legs the vessel is able to elevate the hull from sea water level. In elevated position the vessel...

In this study, the assessment of the KIJK dike follows the new guidelines given by POV-M 2018 using PLAXIS. The macrostability assessment and design of the dike is examined for two cases. In the first case the dike is assessed based on the in-situ conditions (Green dike) whereas in the second case a cantilever sheet pile wall is used in the...

<br/>This research has shed light on the capability of the HASP model in reproducing the dilatant behaviour of OC clays in drained and undrained conditions. The model is formulated by employing a combined hardening rule and uses the void ratio as a state variable while maintaining the simplicity of the MCC model. However, a sensitivity analysis...

This thesis investigates the behavior of single and group micro piles under axial tensile loading. Micro piles are small diameter piles consist of grout and steel rebar and they are capable of absorbing tensile loads. By constructing a group of piles the bearing capacity of each pile within a group is less compared to the single pile. The reason...

The phenomenon of earthquake-induced soil liquefaction has been a major issue among geotechnical engineers mainly due to the dramatic consequences this could have on civil structures. Basically, earthquakes propagate shear waves generating excess pore pressures and thus weakening the effective shear resistance of granular soils to their minimum...

The use of geotextile for slope strengthening was proven based on the investigation and report by Kuwano, Miyata, and Koseki (2014). Therefore, this research examines the impact of geotextile application on slope stability in newly-elevated area in Yuriage, Natori City, Japan. This project discussed the analysis of geotextile-reinforced slope by...

The design and reassessment of quays is subject to uncertainties. Examples of these uncertainties are the soil parameters, soil behavior and the current state of the structural parts. Especially in the reassessment of existing structures it is hard to prove a quay to be safe. In this thesis Bayesian updating is used as a method to reduce this...

Quay structures play an important role in society. How much load these structures can withstand however is not certain. This MSc thesis contains insight into the load capacity of the old Amazonehaven and the current SIF quay structures. Both are quay structures which use a combined sheet pile wall, a reinforced concrete relieving platform, M.V....

By increase in knowledge and complexity of the projects, worldwide, more attention towards safety provision in projects is being paid. With growth in waterway traffic the need of safety provision for structures crossing navigable waters increases. Especially bridge piers and immersed tunnels on the see floor or at tunnel approaches are at bigger...
