To address the increasing housing demand in Europe and simultaneously tackle the challenge of creating a more sustainable construction industry, timber modular buildings present an innovative solution. However, before multi-storey modular buildings become a widespread practice, various engineering challenges need to be addressed. Ensuring...

The method of Macaulay utilizes singularity functions to describe discontinuous forces acting on beam structures. This method has been extended to determine internal forces and deformation properties, where the beam is inclined at a certain angle or curved.

Plated girders have been extensively used in steel bridge construction since the 19th century. Over the past century, the effective width method was developed to take the nonlinearities resulting from shear lag and plate buckling into account. This method leads to having a cross-section with a reduced area in which the stress can linear be...

Macaulay's method utilizes singularity functions to describe discontinue forces acting on beam structures. This method has been extended to determine internal forces and influence lines, making use of a single expression. The method can be applied to analyze all possible scenarios for both one-dimensional and two-dimensional constructions.

Bent up bars were prescribed as shear reinforcement in the first half of the twentieth century, stirrups after the 1960’s. In current Eurocode, bent up bars can be applied again, but restrictions with respect to the maximum shear strength should be followed. Goal of this report is to provide background for this shear strength restriction and...

Traditional approaches to noise barrier design often rely on outdated techniques and resource-intensive materials like concrete and steel. However, with sustainability gaining prominence, aligning noise barrier design with green construction principles becomes crucial. Structural optimization, aimed at minimizing material usage, emerges as a...

Macaulay's method, which makes use of singularity functions to describe external forces on beam structures, is extended for two-dimensional structures. Furthermore an extension on the method of Macaulay is described for singularities in the rotation and displacement field of the structures, based on the article of Falsone, G. (2002), ‘’The Use...

The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

Space frame structures today are a common choice of load bearing system for achieving long spans with minimal interruptions of the floor plan beneath. On top of that, the versatility of space frame structures to conform to any shape makes them particularly interesting today, especially in the context of free-form geometry which is becoming ever...

In the near future, pressure on sustainability requirements in building structures will increase further as governments around the world are forced to tackle climate change issues. The construction industry is one of the most resource intensive and wasteful sectors in the world and is estimated to keep growing at a fast pace due to growing...

Increased traffic loads and ageing of concrete bridges and overpasses in the Netherlands make it necessary to reassess these existing structures. Consequently, the current condition and capacity of many concrete structures need to be evaluated. Residual capacity could be discovered during reassessments of concrete slabs due to a phenomenon...

Many navigation locks in the Netherlands under management and maintenance of Rijkswaterstaat need to be replaced or renewed in a sustainable way before 2050. In order to achieve this goal, Rijkswaterstaat is planning to renew as sustainable and cost-effective as possible. Most of the navigation lock gates that have been renewed in the last...

The orthotropic steel deck (OSD) is a deck system applied regularly in steel bridges all around the world. It consists of a steel deck plate which is stiffened by structural elements placed in two orthogonal directions. The deck plate can be used as an integral part of the structure, causing OSDs to achieve a high material efficiency and...

Orthotropic bridges can be modelled using a grillage model and an orthotropic plate model. The grillage model has some benefits (i.e.: shorter calculation time and easier to apply pre-stressing) compared to the orthotropic plate model. However, during the Blankenburgverbinding project Ballast Nedam experienced that the transverse load-spread of...

For railway travel the Insulated Rail Joint (IRJ) is a critical part in most railway safety systems but at the same time also considered a weak link. The IRJ creates a discontinuity in stiffness and geometry that leads to wheel-rail impact forces. The angled IRJ is a proposal to reduce these impact forces. Despite the real-world experiences with...

The isostatic slab was developed by Pier Nervi and his colleague Aldo Arcangeli to create an elegant and easy to produce floor system, with efficient use of material. These slabs are designed with ribs aligned to the principal bending stress lines that support a flat deck. Concrete isostatic slabs are no longer constructed due to their expensive...

In the Meuse seven weirs are located in the Dutch reaches, controlling the water level to enable inland navigation through the river. The weirs are being scheduled for replacement, where weir Grave is the first one in 2028. They are reaching their end-of-life time. One of the main issues that became of more importance in the recent years is ship...

Piles and pile caps are commonly used in the Netherlands due to the soft shallow subsurface soil that is predominant in the country which does not have sufficient bearing capacity to support heavy structures. Pile caps are currently designed analytically using the strut and tie model (STM). This is believed to be conservative and results in an...

Fatigue is an important issue for orthotropic steel deck (OSD) bridges and therefore a design criterium. Cracks will initiate at several locations of the bridge deck. It is likely that a crack at the trough web to deck plate joint at the crossbeam will initiate first. This crack initiates at the weld root and propagates through the deck plate. A...

In situations with spatial limitations where a bridge is desired, a skewed bridge is a solution. The bridge deck of a skewed bridge has the shape of a parallelogram, in which the angle that remains in the acute corners is defined as the skew angle. This thesis focuses on the design of reinforced concrete skewed slab highway bridges that are...
