To the North of the city of Concepción in the South-West of Chile, lies the town of Dichato. It is situated on the south-eastern side of Coliumo Bay. The Universidad de Concepción (UdeC) owns a marine concession in this bay, which includes a section of beach and sea for a Marine Biology Station (EBMD), belonging to the Faculty of Natural and...

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 research the translation of non-uniform load distributions to equivalent uniform load distributions has been investigated. The equivalent uniform load can be used as input for a single degree of freedom model to compute vulnerability analyses in which hundreds of scenarios need to be analysed.

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 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...

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...

A number of load modes and comfort design guidelines, with the purpose of analyzing the comfort level of target structure, has been introduced in the last few years. The approaches to these issues have in many cases been very different in both how much in detail it goes when describing the pedestrian load and to what extent the load case has to...

This study investigates four numerical models to approximate the static and dynamic resistance of an unreinforced masonry wall loaded in one-way out-of-plane bending. From validation with experimental data it was found that for the combination of shell and interface elements with discrete cracking the static and dynamic behaviour of unreinforced...

This thesis studies the buckling behavior of I-shaped steel columns under the effect of thermal gradients. The mechanical properties of steel decay signicantly with increasing temperature. Therefore, in case of a re, the buckling resistance of steel columns is considerably reduced due to the decrease in the modulus of elasticity and yield...

The goal of this study was development of two predictive programs. The first program predicts the traffic safety on municipal roads. The second program that is developed in the framework of this thesis is a predictive program correlating durable, sustainable and social aspects on roads based on a cost estimation.

The application of prefabricated and usually prestressed concrete elements has increased since mid-20th century. These elements are at the point of reaching the end of their life span, are subjected to damages or a change in functionality. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate their structural safety. In many cases, existing structures do not...

Nowadays, in the Netherlands there are about 600 kilometers of asphaltic revetments lying mainly on sea dikes of which approximately 400 km of dike is covered with asphalt concrete [STOWA, 2011]. Asphalt concrete revetments are applied the most and are mostly of older age. Because of the older age it needs intensive care involving periodic...

Fatigue damage is a common problem in a lot of bridges with orthotropic steel decks. Frequent maintenance is required to prevent aggravation of the problems, which gives a lot of nuisance for the traffic using the bridge. This comes especially into play at large (river) crossings where not many alternatives are available. Therefore, methods are...

The excavated building pit is a frequently used building technique during the construction of structures below ground level. A temporary structure of sheet piles and underwater concrete is designed to retain soil and water. Ribbed tension piles are driven to compensate the hydrostatic pressure after de-watering of the construction pit. Generally...

Designing and modelling foundation structures crosses two engineering disciplines. The structural engineer who designs the structure and the geotechnical engineer who determines the bearing capacity of the soil. When modelling large shallow foundations, it is not always clear how to determine the stiffness of the soil and how it should be used...
