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...

People are already living on water for centuries in some places around the world. However, the concept of building on water has been reintroduced with a new idea in the last two decades. The new idea is to realise a very large floating structure which is as big as a city. Instead of multiple independent floating houses forming a floating...

This master thesis involves the design of a roof for a basketball arena, which has a capacity of 20,000 spectators and it needs to be designed as a concrete shell structure. The size of the stadium is large enough to demand a long spanned shell structure. This thesis attempts to find an elegant solution to this problem, which combines aesthetic...

The current calculation methods which determine the capacity of pinned connections provide different results. In this thesis a detailed look on those theories and the effect of different parameters is studied. Because it is hard to provide any conclusions about just comparing these theories also a FEM analysis is done. In this thesis the FEM...

This thesis presents a parametric design tool for structural analysis of shallow shells. The tool was developed with Rhino and Grasshopper. Also VB (Visual Basic) scripting was used to create new components in the Grasshopper interface. The techniques and methods involved for the development of the tool consists mainly of classic analytical and...

This Master of Science thesis depicts the research done on geodesic dome structures and tensile bolted bamboo connections. The report includes a parametric structural analysis of bamboo geodesic domes assessing the influence of openings, local and global stability, geometrical non-linearity, and the maximum possible dome diameters for domes...

The Finite Element Method is used in many computer programs to analyse the mechanical behaviour of shell structures. Although this method provides good quantitative insight into the mechanical behaviour of shell structures, it provides little qualitative insight. This master graduation thesis is aimed at expanding Finite Element Analysis (FEA)...

Introduction Typhoons and tsunamis are dangerous phenomena for our society and Japan has been exposed to both of these hazards. The risks of these hazards are getting bigger and bigger due to the growing population in the cities near these ‘dangerous’ coasts. This thesis focuses on the design of a storm surge barrier located in Tokyo bay to...

This thesis investigates and presents the practical applicability of Monte Carlo analysis for the structural reliability assessment of existing city bridges. A probabilistic traffic load model for short span bridges is developed to serve as input for reliability calculations. A traffic loading model for short-span bridges is proposed, which is...

This master thesis details the investigation of the effect of geometrical imperfection on thin shell structures using general FEM software packages. The author proposes a finite element based method for the analysis and design of thin shell structures, and describes the implementation of such a procedure on four different FEM packages. The...

Conventional buildings and structures are not designed usually for adapting to contextual aspects and needs: an instant adaptation of building systems by different configurations can result in an instant adaptation to these needs. The research is here applied for the design of an adaptive acoustic ceiling for a multi-purpose theatre. High real...
