This thesis comprises of vertical deformation differences in high-rise structures where a concrete stability core is combined with a timber frame. The timber frame consists out of prefab timber modules which derive all lateral stability from the concrete core. Due to contrasting elastic, hygroexpansion and viscoelastic properties there is a...

A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

A new approach to applying the finite difference method for solving the shell model problem. By solving the general shell differential equations (Sanders-Koiter equations) with first-order finite-difference approximation only, a finite difference algorithm called shell code has been developed. <br/><br/>To this end, a 1200-line Python program...

In the presented work, we have developed a method to analyse the interaction between the wind and membrane structures. The complex behaviour of light weighted membrane structures can induce dynamic and wind effects, so this requires an appropriate method to analyse the structure. When the deformation of membrane structures is large, it becomes...

A steel frame is designed which is expandable and reducible at any time. In order to reduce the assembly and disassembly time of the frame a new type of beam-to-column connection is proposed, a so-called plug &amp; play connection.The design codes cannot be used for the estimation of the structural performance of this connection. Therefor the...

A new approach to applying the finite difference method for solving the plate model problem. By decomposing higher-order differential equations in plate theory into several first-order differential equations, a python program was built in an attempt to solve those equations with first-order finite difference approximation. After testing several...

Most bridges in the Western European road networks are ageing. The vast majority of about 90% of these bridges have reinforced concrete as a building material. The traffic intensity, as well as the axle, and the average vehicle weight have increased since these structures were opened to traffic. Furthermore, the structural (design) codes have...

At the Shonai River around Nagoya, Japan, several flood related problems occur. These problems occur at different locations, each with its own problems or limitations. The desired safety level as requested by the government is that the river should be able to have a discharge which has a probability of failure of once in 200 years. At many...

Soil-mix walls are subsoil walls, which are constructed by in situ mixing of soil<br/>with cement and water. The technique was initially used as a ground improvement<br/>technique and is now being developed as construction method for walls<br/>with a structural purpose. Currently these walls are reinforced with large steel<br/>profiles, which...

The near future is challenging: depletion of non-renewable energy depletion, electricity shortage and sustainability give the need of developing renewable energy technology. The solar updraft tower power generation technology using solar and wind generates a reasonable amount of electricity with zero carbon footprint during operation. The...

Offshore wind power provides an alternative to fossil fuels while negating the effect of visual and auditive distortion of onshore wind turbines. Located several kilometres offshore, the transmission cable resistance becomes substantial. To limit the losses, the voltage in the cables is increased in a substation. As this structure is often the...

Railway crossings are one of the most important and vulnerable components in railway network. Nowadays, due to intensive use of the track together with higher train speeds and heavier axle loads, more and more problems associated with crossings are reported and it is continuing to be an important factor limiting its service life. In this MSc...

With increasing velocities of trains, passenger comfort starts to play a larger role in the design of railway bridges. There is little experience with the Eurocode passenger comfort criterion in the Netherlands. It is relevant for the industry to have a way to fulfil this criterion, also in an early stage of railway bridge design. A sufficiently...

In the last decades induced earthquakes are taking place more frequently in Groningen. This is due to gas extraction form the soil. Buildings are damaged by the earthquakes and building collapse is possible in the near future. Houses in Groningen are commonly build up out of single leaf masonry cavity walls and are not designed for earthquake...

One of the most dangerous events that can occur on an offshore topside structure is an explosion. If blast analyses is performed without taking plasticity into account, then it may lead to very conservative design. On the other hand monitoring the weight by optimising the structural design is an important design aspect of such structures....

This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of...

The purpose of this MSc thesis is to find a feasible concept for a circa 4500 m long buoyancy bridge, which is located at the Sognefjord in Norway. The concept should be structurally and aesthetically competitive. In contrast to bridges on shore with fixed supports, a buoyancy bridge is supported on floating pontoons. As result, loads will cause...

Bascule bridges can be designed with two operating mechanisms in order to open and close the bridge. Due to certain effects a difference in force per mechanism can occur. Therefore the Dutch standard for movable bridge, the VOBB, states to use a force distribution of 1/3 - 2/3 between the mechanisms. This means that both the mechanisms are...
