Concrete is the second most used material in the world after water and recent trends show no slowing down of the concrete use around the world. Concrete is also a huge contributor to CO2 emissions as it makes up 8% of emissions. This study investigates the optimization of concrete structures to reduce environmental impact while maintaining...

Het Noordzeekanaal verbindt de Haven van Amsterdam met de Noordzee via het sluizencomplex van IJmuiden. In de huidige situatie is de Noordersluis maatgevend voor de maximale diepgang van de scheepvaart op het Noordzeekanaal. Met de geplande realisatie van Zeesluis IJmuiden begin 2022, zal de Noordersluis niet langer maatgevend zijn voor de...

The concept of shear loading and the shear resistance is well known for ‘regular’ sized beams, meaning beams that can be characterized as a slender beam. However, once the beam increases in size such that it is characterized as a deep beam or even falls outside the range of the typical deep beam, less knowledge is available....

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...

Vertical sliding valves that are part of a filling and emptying system of a lock are often subjected to an underflow of water during emptying and filling. The flow induces time varying forces on the structure which leads to dynamic behaviour of the valve. Whether the structure is in the range of resonance and what the amplitude of the vibrations...

Hydraulic structures can be prone to impulsive wave impact, which is a highly stochastic and uncertain process. This type of impact, defined by extreme pressure peaks and a very short duration, is not only caused by breaking waves, but also by non-breaking standing waves on structures with an overhang, such as culverts and steel gates. In this...

A ship lock scheduling model called LOSCO was developed in order to decrease passage times at locks with two parallel chambers. Three locks were chosen to model, as they are some of the busiest locks of the Netherlands. The Krammersluizen, the Sluizen Hansweert and the Kreekraksluizen. Passage times are not collected at the locks, therefore the...

For the design of a steel sheet pile, verification checks should be done on multiple failure mechanisms. One of the failure mechanisms which should be checked is the check on global buckling. This is a mechanism in which the deformation of the pile is enlarged due to the normal or vertical force. With the enlargement of the sheet pile, the soil...

The goal of this research is to assess technical and economic feasibility of hydropower at the weir-complex of Driel. A local initiative opting to improve the environment gained interest in the idea and asked Arcadis NL for help. The weir complex at Driel lays in a key position in the Dutch river Delta and regulates the flow to the IJssel and...

This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

Hydraulic structures that are surrounded by flowing water can experience undesirable Flow-Induced Vibrations. These vibrations have a record of negative consequences. The most important cause of vibrations is self-excitation. This is a mechanism in which the forces acting on the hydraulic gate are amplified by the movement of the hydraulic gate...

Over the past years Fibre Reinforced Polymers, or FRP, have started making more of an appearance in civil engineering structures. They have the advantages that they are light-weight, do not corrode and theoretically require little maintenance during their lifespan. Originally they were used to construct reinforcement, cables and small bridges...
