The city of Amsterdam has a large number of old quay walls with rotten foundation piles. These foundation piles need to be identified and measures need to be taken. The urban quay walls are supported by two types of foundation: pinewood piles, which are easily affected by bacterial decay and spruce piles. To understand the mechanical behaviour...

Masonry is one of the most commonly used construction materials for residential buildings and historic buildings around the world. Some of these buildings are located at seismic zones, while unreinforced masonry structures are vulnerable to seismic loads. To assess the existing masonry buildings and to design new masonry structures, nonlinear...

Unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings are vulnerable when subjected to out-of-plane dynamic loading, especially under as earthquakes. Within the masonry building, the wall spanning in the direction perpendicular to the seismic loading is the most critical component. Damage to these walls (out-of-plane failure) frequently leads to the partial or...

During the early stages of the construction process of a building, the potential impact of design decisions is at its greatest. One of the reasons is the lack of computational tools at these stages. The main objective of this research project was the expansion of StructuralComponents by the development of a parametric real-time computational...

The development of computational tools to aid with early-stage design of buildings is an emerging topic of great value. Developing a good conceptual design for a building is important because it can save a great amount of time and resources over the entire building process. This report discusses the project StructuralComponents 6, a continuation...

The aim of this thesis project is to investigate the model uncertainty of non-linear finite element analysis of reinforced concrete structures at ultimate limit state by focusing on concrete cracking model, concrete-reinforcement interaction model and mesh size. Following this, eight finite element modelling strategies are developed and 67...

In recent decades, gas production has caused numerous human-induced shallow earthquakes in the province of Groningen, The Netherlands. The buildings in this area were not designed for these unexpected earthquake loads and have shown to be vulnerable. However, current strengthening measures are considered to be time-consuming, expensive, and a...

The SBR richtlijn A states threshold values for the vibration speeds causing a 1% probability of failure of masonry structures. These threshold values are very useful for structural designers, because during the construction of new structures or the demolition of existing structures, it is important to know if these structural vibrations can...

This research describes the demand of a Displacement-based approach for the assessment of out-of plane behaviour of one-way vertically-spanning unreinforced masonry (URM) walls of terraced and detached houses in the Groningen Province. One of the most vulnerable components of a typical Dutch unreinforced masonry building subjected to earthquake...

The growing need to understand the behaviour of un-reinforced masonry URM), subjected to<br/>repeated light man-made earthquakes caused by the extraction of gas in the north-eastern part<br/>of The Netherlands has resulted in intense research to determine the exact process of crack<br/>initiation and propagation. The historical masonry buildings...

The rapid development in statistics, information technology, and computational power have en- abled numerous innovative methods to emerge in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) for structural damage detection, both in practical application and research. The intention of such methods is to use the data obtained from the monitoring system to...

In the recent years, increasing induced seismic activities have been observed in the northern part of the Netherlands due to gas extraction. These seismic events may cause severe damages to the building stock in this area, which is mainly composed of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings not designed to withstand seismic loads. An extensive...

Increasing disasters, due to urbanism in combination with the high probability of earthquakes in the Western Indian Himalayas, are impacting the well-being of local communities. The vernacular Kath-Kuni (also called: ‘cator-and-cribbage’ or ‘timber laced masonry’) architecture is a centuries-old building method spread over the Himalayas and the...

Masonry is one of the oldest and popular building materials used world over. The constituent materials are readily available and hence are cheap in most areas. So it serves as an economically viable building material. Though, its load bearing capacity under compression is high, it does not perform well under tensile forces, cyclic and lateral...

The out-of-plane behavior of unreinforced masonry walls subjected to lateral loading is a complex structural problem. This thesis focuses on the stability of URM walls in a building system under seismic loads that are comparable to those found in the Groningen scenario. The investigation is carried out by addressing both the physical and the...
