Unreinforced Masonry, a popular construction material with a rich historical legacy, has been resilient through centuries, despite its susceptibility to failure through various loading conditions such as seismic forces. Understanding the mechanical behaviour of masonry, particularly the cohesion and frictional mechanisms at interfaces between...

The offshore wind energy industry is quite literally reaching for the sky to meet the increasing demand for renewable energy in Europe. Offshore wind turbines are sprouting out of the waves off the coast of many European nations and their size is increasing rapidly. As the turbines become larger and the waters in which they are placed become...

In an era marked by the demand for unprecedented levels of precision in engineering applications, the profound impact of friction forces on motion control systems cannot be underestimated. This thesis extensively investigates the frictional behavior of the Proton Motion Stage, an advanced high-precision motion control system developed by...

Friction damping is common in engineering structures for the purpose of energy dissipation and vibration control. Examples of applications are bolted connections and earthquake isolation systems. However, there is a shortage of works that investigate the effects of different contact materials on the energy dissipation performance and friction...

The development towards a circular economy has many hurdles to overcome. For the construction sector an important step in this process is the transition towards reusing structural elements. Prefabrication of elements is a significant step towards achieving this concept. However, a case where both prefabrication and reuse are limited is the...

Nautical radar systems are subjected to random vibrations during their service life, which may lead to the degradation of the materials and a possible fatigue failure. Assessing the impact of these vibrations to the structural integrity of the radar is crucial for drafting appropriate maintenance plans and therefore, the development of a new...

The Circular Arch Bridge is a pedestrian bridge consisting out of four different recycled materials: cast glass, ceramic, circument and geopolymer concrete. Due to an increasing amount of vibration problems in modern pedestrian bridges they should not only be designed for static loads, but dynamic loads have to be considered as well. There are...

Pile tip damage due to impact with an object (boulder) during the driving process of monopiles is of main concern in the offshore wind sector. Numerical modelling could accurately describe this failure mechanism and used as a tool in practice but also for the development of appropriate guidelines. In this research project, dynamic Finite Element...

Bridges are exposed to dynamic forces – such as pedestrians crossing a bridge or the wind force acting on a bridge – which cause vibration of the structure. When a structure is forced at one of its eigenfrequencies it deforms into a corresponding shape leading to major deformations, which, in the worst-case scenario, can lead to collapse of the...
