FRP is increasingly utilised in the built environment, following successful implementations in the aerospace and marine industry. However, it exhibits poor stiffness and stability compared to conventional materials such as steel, making it challenging to satisfy serviceability and comfort requirements. Optimising FRP to address these challenges...

The use of Glass Fibre-Reinforced Polymer as a building material in structures or structural components is on the rise. Standards such as CUR96, DNV and JRC provide a basis of design with the material. However, there is a lack of confidence in the design phase with structures made of Glass Fibre-Reinforced Polymer, resulting in the use of large...

According to experiments the fatigue damage behaviour of fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) experiences a load sequence effect. In this report the ability of the cohesive fatigue damage model of Dávila (2020) to simulate the behaviour after a load amplitude change is investigated. For this a double cantilever beam (DCB) with fictitious material...

The development towards a circular economy has many hurdles to overcome. For the construction sector an important step in this process is the transition towards reusing structural elements. Prefabrication of elements is a significant step towards achieving this concept. However, a case where both prefabrication and reuse are limited is the...

Ageing of infrastructure leads to an increasing demand for new technologies and design solutions in current bridge engineering. Over the last decades the traffic intensity has grown tremendously, while design codes and regulations have become stricter. Many current steel bridges realised in The Netherlands suffer from fatigue problems....

Fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) can be a solution for future bridge renovation when only the deck of the bridge needs replacement. In these cases the deck is replaced with an FRP sandwich panel deck. The main advantages are a high strength-to-weight ratio which is beneficial for the ever heavier lorries and the fast installation which prevents...

Offshore solar power installations can be increased in size and efficiency compared to land based installations due to the availability of space and the cooling effect of water. To increase survivability in large waves, very large floating solar platforms can be made flexible. However, a flexible structure is susceptible to wrinkling due to...

This era of science and technology has seen widespread use of composite materials for a variety of applications ranging from the defense sector to the transport and construction sectors. Composites are mainly comprised of fibres impregnated with a polymeric matrix and have a superior strength to weight ratio as compared to traditional...

In recent times, composite materials are widely applied in the construction industry because of their superior properties compared to traditional materials like steel and concrete. The use of composite materials in defense and infrastructure protective applications to resist high rate dynamic loading conditions has been gaining the interest of a...

Hybrid concrete-SHCC beams are a new development in construction techniques. SHCC stands for Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite. In such beams, the tension zone could for example consist, next to the traditional reinforcement, of a material that shows strain hardening behaviour. That helps with controlling the crack width. In traditional ...

Highway traffic bridges have been subjected to increasing loads over the past decades. Some of the movable bridge leafs in these highway bridges were constructed in the 1960s and they are now close to the end of their intended life span. These bridge leafs were typically designed and executed with hardwood deck boards. In the initial design...

Crack growth is an important failure mechanism in many engineering materials. Numerical models for crack growth have been developed within the framework of damage mechanics. All these models aim for the same goal, obtaining accurate results for crack growth under various loading conditions. Many damage models are based upon the cohesive crack...

The use of the Classical Laminate Theory (CLT) is limited to laminates where all the fibres in a ply are oriented in the plane of the laminate. In some applications, it is possible that the plies will start at the bottom of a laminate and end at the top of the laminate. This means an inclination is added to the plies, which creates an extra...

For a housing project in Sirdal, Norway, a bridge is required in order to reach the construction site. Royal HaskoningDHV is interested in the possibilities that FRP composites might offer in terms of bridge design for this situation. Added to this, the fact that construction is mainly possible from one side of the river lead to the idea of an...

Faragau, Andrei (author)
When a source moves along a straight line with constant velocity and acts on an inhomogeneous medium, energy is radiated away from the source. This phenomenon is referred to as transition radiation. The energy radiation can also be generated by the change of velocity or path of the source (radiation in a non-uniform motion), as well as when it...

This thesis consists of a research study concerning the application and environmental performance of Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) for application in movable bridge design. The research is accompanied by a proposed redesign exploiting the advantageous properties of FRP and a life cycle assessment (LCA) of multiple FRP variants’ environmental...
