Many old moveable bridges have exceeded their technical lifetime. Replacement of the foundations is expensive and often unnecessary if the new bridge superstructure is lighter than the old one. With stricter design guidelines being in effect nowadays, a conventional orthotropic steel deck design will end up being heavier. A lightweight fiber...

This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of...

Wind industry is developing fast, moving from onshore to offshore and from shallow water to greater depths. At the same time, it is facing significant cost challenges. There are certain advantages to placing wind turbines offshore: better wind resources, economies of scale and increased public acceptance. The cost of traditional substructure...

This master thesis details the investigation of the effect of geometrical imperfection on thin shell structures using general FEM software packages. The author proposes a finite element based method for the analysis and design of thin shell structures, and describes the implementation of such a procedure on four different FEM packages. The...

The thesis presents a parametric design tool for plate structural analysis. The goal of the thesis is to establish a real-time visualized program for structural calculation and to make it parameterized. The tool is based on a visualized drawing program Rhino with Grasshopper plug-in to generate the parametric environment for the plate structural...
