In March 2016, an addendum to the Dutch design guideline for micropiles, CUR 236, was published. This addendum elaborated on the ‘axial stiffness of micropiles’. The softening behaviour was here first mentioned as an aspect relevant for the axial stiffness of the micropiles. Due to the slender geometry of the micropiles, this further translates...

In Rotterdam underneath the first load bearing sand layer is a layer of compressible soil, called the "Kedichem" layer. Under this layer of compresible soil is another load bearing sand layer located, at approximately -50m NAP, but most of the buildings in Rotterdam are foundated on the first loadbearing sand layer at approximately -23m NAP. Due...

A hot topic in the Netherlands is the safety reassessment of dikes. Currently several (river)dikes are being reinforced to withstand a given normative high water level. The environment of those dikes is often characterised by small floodplains and urban areas right next to the dike, wherefore standard geo-technical measures cannot be applied....

Even though for most hydraulic and geotechnical structures clear guidelines are available, those for flexible dolphins are still missing. Consequently, whether a design is safe is usually subject of debate. Economical dolphin piles are large diameter tubular piles, susceptible to local buckling. After installation the embedded part of these...

This thesis presents an investigation on the effect of overlapping passive zones in sand. The hypothesis of larger stresses in the soil and a larger ultimate resistance capacity in case of overlapping passive zones was firstly investigated in the numerical study by Joosse (2015). He introduced an intensification factor as a design optimization...

Sheet pile walls are increasingly applied in the Netherlands to reinforce dikes. Up to now it is not known what is the real strength and stiffness behaviour of this sheet pile walls and when the dike with the construction can be considered to have failed. Nowadays an elastic design is applied for reinforcements with sheet pile walls, while for...

The induced earthquakes in the north of the Netherlands cause problems for the shallow foundations. At this moment there is no generally accepted way to deal with these earthquakes. The NPR advises a combination of two methods to calculate the seismic bearing capacity of shallow foundations. In order to find out if this procedure is legitimately...

As a consequence of extracting gas from gas fields in the subsoil of the Groningen province during the last decades, seismic activity is increasingly encountered. As The Netherlands is not located in a seismic active area, dynamic loads due to earthquakes historically are not taken into account in structural design. The dynamic loads from...

To improve the design of soil retaining walls in narrow trenches, a design optimization tool is introduced by Hosseinzadeh and Joosse (2015). This design optimisation tool is an intensification factor on the passive earth pressure coefficient Kp, that includes the effect of overlapping passive zones. The authors argue that the passive earth...

This thesis is focusing on the building damage parameters monitoring techniques and the validation of the current damage prediction methodology on building response next to deep excavations. Settlement risk assessments were done in Delft tunnel project to define and control the risk of damaging the adjacent buildings to the tunnel by following...

Suction caissons are used more and more for various in the oil&gas and offshore wind industries. Although, the use of suction caissons is not new, uncertainty still exists regarding their installation, due to the varying soil profiles encountered and the absence of experience within the offshore industry. Prediction methods, regarding the...

In this thesis different models are considered which can deal with the interaction between pile foundations and structures. This to find the most efficient way to model pile foundation structures whereby both the efficiency of the design as building process are taken into account. This are the models D-Pile (geotechnical), Scia Engineer ...

The Parallel Seismic (PS) test is a non-destructive test that is used to determine the depth of foundations. This thesis explores the use of the PS method to detect flaws in in-situ constructed foundation piles as an alternative to existing testing methods. An acoustic signal is introduced to the head of the pile with a hammer. An elastic wave...

This thesis focuses on the stability of slender micro piles with a diameter of 100-400mm in soft soils when used in compressive situations. In the western part of the Netherlands and many other deltaic areas weak clay and peat deposits overlay stiffer sand layers. In these geological conditions flexural buckling may cause a considerable design...

The static bearing capacity of most driven piles in The Netherlands is derived using a preinstallation method based on soil parameters. As a result of recent research the reliability of this method decreases; As a result different calculations might become attractive. A method widely used abroad is a Dynamic Load Test(DLT) to calculate the...

This thesis has as subject the shielding effect of piles on the front wall of quay walls. The reason for writing this paper is to find an answer to the difference between field measurements and design calculations of stresses and deflections in the front wall of a special type of quay wall in the Port of Rotterdam. The relevance of this issue...

This thesis focuses on the behaviour of micropiles under axial tensile loading and modelling of the pile head displacement of micropiles. In the behaviour of micropiles, defined in load and corresponding pile head displacement, the development of the shear stress along the pile shaft is found to be of leading influence. This development of the...
