Rodriguez Piedrabuena, Alba (author)
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) forecasts an accelerated increase in wind installations as a result of the aggressive climate change and green energy objectives set by the majority of countries. As a consequence, new regions worldwide that were previously thought to be unsuitable for the construction of offshore wind farms due to the soil...

In the past decade, suction caissons have emerged as a preferred offshore foundation solution for wind turbines due to their silent installation process and potential for recyclability. However, there has been growing speculation regarding the necessity of under base filling, which involves filling the gap between the top plate of the suction...

The objective of this thesis is to enhance understanding of the behaviour of a flexible dolphin and its interaction with the surrounding soil in order to determine the optimal embedded depth. A comprehensive field test is conducted to gain deeper insights into the behaviour of the flexible dolphin and the soil surrounding the pile. The test...

The energy market is growing and noise regulations for offshore foundation pile installation grow stricter. New initiatives arise to comply with the ongoing developments in the field, such as the BLUE Piling Technology under development by IQIP. Its features are presented as reduced underwater noise levels during installation, which is attibuted...

Quay walls are often designed with Finite Element models (FE models) to take into account the complex soil-structure interaction and highly non-linear soil behavior. However, the effect of temperature variations is uncertain if it is taken into account in the design of the quay walls at the Port of Rotterdam.<br/><br/>Nowadays, new quay walls...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

Offshore structures are often founded on mud-mat foundations which prevent the structure from settling excessively. Pressure differences are generated under mud-mats during removal from the seabed. These differences lead to a force that resists the uplift. A literature study on breakout resulted in a hypothesized distinction of four mechanisms...

Suction caissons have been used extensively for anchoring and supporting the offshore installations like oil platforms and wind turbines. These foundations are normally subjected to complex combinations of the vertical, horizontal and moment loads (i.e. V, H, M) from the self-weight, wind, wave and currents. In the past decades, extensive...

Inefficient installation of pile foundations may lead to high risks of material damage, inadequate pile capacity, and time delays that can have significant financial implications to any kind of project, both onshore and offshore. Therefore, there is high demand for a comprehensive driveability analysis that considers key aspects of the...

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)....

In modern piling technology screw piles are used as a type of deep foundation for engineering structures, with the principal benefit of using said piles is that they offer an installation method that is virtually noise and vibration free. This makes these piles ideal for construction works in urban areas where surrounding structures can be...

Deployment of renewable energy is essential to reach a carbon neutral economy. Offshore wind farms have caught the interest of many developed countries since they are an essential source of green energy. The interest of this thesis lays in the design of the foundation used for offshore wind farms, in particular the interaction between the...

This research looks at the workings of three design methods for piles loaded in compression and tension by modelling capacity for different soil profiles, varying parameters and load tests. Compared methods are from the NEN 9997-1 (NEN), CUR 2001-8 report (CUR) and a newly developed international standard (ISO). It is generally accepted that the...

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...

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...

The main reason for this research is the possibility of landslides that could trigger a tsunami together with general interest from the oil and gas industry. The goal of this thesis is to find out what the geotechnical properties are of the 7 different locations at the eastern flank of the Rockall bank which is located to the west of Ireland and...

Over the last couple years, a number investigations into the α factors used for the cone penetration test (CPT) based calculation methods for the base and shaft capacity of driven piles have been carried out. These investigation, express different concerns and limitation of the currently used CPT based calculation methods. Prompting the need for...

Monopiles are commonly used as foundations for offshore wind turbine generators (WTGs). Due to the rapid growth of the offshore wind energy sector, there is increasing demand for WTGs of larger capacities which evidently leads to demand for monopiles with larger diameter. An industry standard approach for assessing pile lateral response is the p...
