The Rotterdam municipality is constantly busy replacing old footbridges that have reached their lifetime. Lately, this is done using modern materials, such as fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP). FRP is a relatively light-weight material that has a high yield strength, which allows for aesthetically pleasing, very slender designs. Governing for such...

Fibre reinforced polymer is a new material that is more and more used in civil engineering works. This lightweight and high-strength material comes with a lot of advantages. The application of this lightweight material in bridge structures can result in a reduction of the out-of-service time of railways. On the other hand, the low stiffness of...

This report investigates the potential reduction of steel weight for offshore wind turbine supporting jacket structures, if conventional welded joints are replaced by innovative wrapped FRP joints. This new type of connection is under development by Dr. Marko Pavlovic at the Delft University of Technology, and shows outstanding fatigue...

The increasing number of vehicles does not stop, axle loads get higher and wheel contact surfaces have decreased causing bridges to show significant fatigue damage. Demolishing and building a new bridge is out of the picture due to the current ideas on sustainability and environmental impact. Therefore renovation is necessary, as much of the...

Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is a new construction material that often is used for pedestrian bridges. It offers a good strength-weight relation, a long-term durability and slender bridge shapes. Slenderness has effect on dynamic behaviour of the construction and vibrations are common for these bridges. Hand calculations are commonly used for...

Many movable bridges, built in the 1950’s and 1960’s, reach their end of service life or do not meet future traffic demands. Renovation of those bridge, if possible, is preferred over newly built from an economical point of view. Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) decks prove to be excellent for retrofitting bridge decks compared to traditional...

This master thesis contains a study on the implementation of Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) onto a steel bascule bridge, with the aim of weight reduction. As a case study, the Amalia bridge near Waddinxveen (crossing the Gouwe channel) is used. Two alternative design propositions are presented. The thesis has been subdivided into several parts,...

The increasing use of Fibre Reinforced Polymers produced by Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding in civil infrastructure applications leads to the need for an appropriate research data. The VARTM produced structural elements are not limited in dimensions and material properties and typically are slender structures parts of which are...

This research studies the experimental and numerical behaviour of a simple beam to column joint using a fin-plate welded to an rectangular hollow core section. The following aspects of the joint are investigated:<br/>The resistance of the welded connection.<br/>Defining the force distribution inside the joint. <br/>Improvement of the design...

Vibration-based structural health monitoring of civil engineering structures is receiving increasing attention in recent years. This is due to the development of more robust system identification techniques as well as improvements with regard to the practicality of installing the necessary instrumentation. Health monitoring systems are more...

Over the last two decades Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) constructions have infiltrated the infrastructure market, particularly in the Netherlands. This is due to the increased number of short-span pedestrian and cycle bridges which are used to traverse canals and waterways. FRP bridges are desirable as they are light-weight, require low...

The use of fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) are stimulated in the construction industry for their remarkable corrosion resistance, good thermo-mechanical properties, high strength-to-weight ratio and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The open-hole strength of FRP is an important parameter in a composite design because it can be representative in...

The last decades Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) structures start to find their own place in the field of civil engineering applications and quite lately in bridge engineering. Composites are considered highly versatile materials that offer great tailoring on their design. Synthetic fibers and resins are already quite popular especially in...

Adhesive bonded joints are commonly used in structural applications. The thickness of the bondline has an important influence in the resistance of the joint. Information on this topic is mostly available for thin bondlines; up to 1 mm. However, little information is known about the effect of increasing the bondline thickness. This study consists...

Digital Image Correlation is a cheap and easy to use measurement method that has been proved to characterise any solid material parameters up to plastic deformation range. The digital image correlation measurement system is based on the tracking of a collective number of pixels from the surface of the reference image to the deformed image. This...

The Netherlands has one of the busiest rail network in the Europe (Oliver Wyman, 2016) that is growing rapidly due to the limited rail network and improved inter-connectivity with road and marine transportation mode. Because of intensifying rail traffic and ageing rail bridge infrastructure (Archives: Arcadis), the rail bridge infrastructure...
