In a bored railway tunnel project in the Middle-East, difficulties in terms of ovalization, water leakages and settlement of several lining rings located in a fault zone were observed at the end of the construction stage. The present research attempted to find the cause for this lining behaviour. The determination of critical loading conditions,...

In 2017 new guidelines concerning macro stability calculations were implemented by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. These guidelines are formulated in “Wettelijk Beoordelingsinstrumentarium” (WBI). The largest difference with the previous version of the guidelines concerns the material model that is prescribed to determine...

The widely used cone penetration test (CPT) allows in-situ measurements of soil behaviour during continuous penetration. The traditional sensors incorporated in a cone penetrometer are for measuring cone resistance, sleeve friction, pore pressure, and inclination. Many supplementary sensors have been studied and tried in research settings and in...

During the advance of a tunnel boring machine (TBM), the torque applied to rotate the cutterhead must overcome the resisting moments acting on it. Hence, one of the major concerns of TBM design is to determine the torque and power requirements of the excavation machine. The first empirical approach for torque estimation was developed in the 80’s...

This study presents the results of small scale flume experiments on a submerged rectangular cylinder subjected to a current, regular wave and combined wave-current environment. The objective of the study is to gain more knowledge about the hydrodynamics around and the kinematics of a submerged structure, to give a contribute to the research...

Settlement data of the Kiltunnel and the Heinenoordtunnel show that immersed tunnels in the Netherlands have been experiencing much larger settlement than expected when designing the tunnels causing cracks in the concrete and leakages in the joints. Settlements of 8 - 70 mm have been measured at the Kiltunnel and of 7 - 30 mm at the...

When engineers at Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC) used the Eurocode 2 (EC2) for the verification of flexural cracks in cross sections of immersed tunnel elements, they found out that there was more reinforcement needed for crack width limitation than for tensile strength of the reinforced concrete. This raised questions, namely whether the...

This study was conducted in the framework of the Leendert de Boerspolder stress test. It focuses on the investigation the performance of the available constitutive models in describing the coupled hydro-mechanical response of peats and organic clays as observed during the stress test. The soil models that are considered are the Mohr-Coulomb...

The development in harvesting trend of wind energy is evidenced as a result of the Paris convention. Therefore, future wind turbines tend to move towards deeper water, which sets a requirement of larger capacity support structure. The design guidelines of Gravity Based Foundation (GBF) which is capable of supporting deeper water wind turbines...

The response of a shallow foundation has been investigated by numerical simulations in a series of 1g small scale tests using the Finite Element Method. In this numerical study, special attention has been given to the influence of soft boundaries as a measure to counteract boundary effects, since limitations of space were present in the...

In this thesis an evaluation of the limit values which are stated in CUR 236 – Micropiles is presented. This evaluation has been done by means of a dataset. The dataset contained information on failure tests performed on four different types of micropiles, and was initially used for research on relations between logged installation aspects and...

Geotechnical design problems may be characterized by a certain degree of uncertainty, due to insufficient soil data and transformation of test results in soil parameters. In common practice, engineers perform deterministic analyses according to design standards as Eurocode 7, where the uncertainties are taken into account through partial factors...

The static liquefaction tank (SL-tank) is a unique large-scale facility that provides a means to simulate the conditions of a submerged soil slope under failure conditions. Static liquefaction (SL) may be defined as a significant loss of soil’s shear strength due to a substantial development of excess pore water pressure under monotonic loads....
