For the fatigue assessment of welded structures, several design methods are described by the design codes of IIW, Eurocode3 and DNV. The relation between the stress range and cycles to failures were derived from experiments: the SN curves. With the increased accessibility of finite element software to engineers, a more flexible approach emerged:...

Traditionally, steel joints are calculated by the calculation rules described in the Eurocode 3: NEN-EN 1993-1-8. Effective lengths are important parameters to determine the different resistances of the components in the steel joint. Finite Element Analyses (FEA)...

Existing sophisticated numerical micro- and macro models have already proven to be capable of simulating typical masonry behaviour. However, assessing the global response of masonry buildings using brick-to-brick micro modelling or even simplified macro modelling, in which masonry is regarded as a continuum material, takes such an amount of time...

The main question of this thesis is the result of a survey by ‘provincie Zuid-Holland’ (PZH), that has developed a ‘uniform model’ for the assessment of the structural safety of existing prefabricated culverts. PZH is considering the possibility of using generic parameters to decide on the strength of existing culverts in the area. The province...

The Groningen region, in the Netherlands, experiences earthquakes since 1986. These earthquakes are new to the region and the structures built there are not designed for it. Therefore, they pose a great risk for the historical structures and people living in the area. Most of the buildings there are built using masonry and to analyze such...

A high number of concrete bridges that were built in the Netherlands around half a century ago and which had a transversely prestressed thin deck, nowadays raise a series of questions regarding their structural integrity. This is because their service life has been affected over time by a substantial rise in the number of vehicles that transit...

A multidisciplinary project at Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción, supervised by the Delft University of Technology. Coquimbo is a port city approximately 400 km north of Santiago and lies next to La Serena. Coquimbo was recently hit by a tsunami on the 16th of September 2015. Most damage occurred in Coquimbo Bay, which is the scope...

Numerous structures constructed in 60’s and 70’s are now reaching their design service life and require reassessment to assure safety of users, reliability and economical exploitation. As a consequence, an adequate structural assessment of existing bridges has recently become a major subject of scientific work commissioned by the authorities in...

In this thesis research has been performed to the strength and fatigue behaviour of existing riveted steel structures. The objective of this study is to research the ways of making a structural model that accurately predicts the behaviour of a riveted detail. For this purpose, a critically stressed riveted node from the steel road bridge the...

An arch dam is a curved surface structure that is designed to resist water pressure at the convex side. An arch dam is usually constructed in a narrow V-shape valley with strong rock foundations. Through the arched shape the water pressure is distributed from the upstream face of the dam to the abutment edges of the dam which are embedded in the...

With more advanced methods and increasing computational power, the simulation of reinforced concrete in a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has become more and more realistic. In a non-linear analysis of reinforced concrete, cracking behaviour and the maximum load-capacity can be determined. Such analyses sometimes suffer from unstable behaviour,...

The intent of US design codes is to design buildings with uniform reliability regardless of the building type, location, or design approach. However, it is unlikely that risk-consistency is achieved for different design approaches, as differences and discrepancies between these design methodologies exist. This study focused on the structural...

Wire rope is used in numerous applications such as elevators, power lines, suspension bridges, ships and the mooring of offshore structures. In many of these applications wire rope needs to be bent. Currently the Norwegian certification instance Det Norske Veritas (DNV) prescribes a capacity reduction factor for bending wire rope. It is unclear...

An increasing number of activities are moved into Arctic regions. As oil and gas companies are exploring the options in these regions, structures are required which can withstand the severe environmental conditions. Existing structures are subjected to heavy mechanical loads due to moving ice sheets. For concrete structures in particular ice...

A critical issue that is raising concern among the scientists and engineers during the last decade in the Netherlands is the occurrence of relatively small earthquakes in the North part of the Netherlands (Groningen, Drenthe and North Holland). These earthquakes that have a non-tectonic origin and are related to the gas-field depletion, have...

Tubular steel sections are used as foundation piles in near-shore applications like jetties or bridgeworks. The steel tubes are connected to a concrete capping beam or pile cap which transfers the forces from the structure to the piles. Multiple options for this connection type have been developed over the years with varying specifications....

One of the tests in the ESECMaSE project is the large scale earthquake test on a building. The finite element model that is discussed in this thesis is based on this pseudo-dynamic test. The material model follows from a macro modelling approach and has smeared-cracks. The mode shape and eigenfrequencies are obtained through an eigenvalue...
