A large number of offshore wind turbines have been installed in recent years, and even<br/>more are being erected in current and future projects. The majority of these turbines<br/>have been or are being built of monopile foundations. Eventually, both the turbine and<br/>the foundation have to be decommissioned. However, decommissioning options...

Both preloaded and injected bolted connections are commonly used in steel bridges in The Netherlands. Where preloaded bolted connections are already used for a longer time, the injection of bolt holes is a method used from the 1970s onwards. Injection of bolts became a good alternative for the replacement of riveted connections. This injection...

The global focus on climate change and the transition away from fossil fuels has highlighted the importance of renewable energy sources. Offshore wind turbines are being optimized and are therefore growing in size and power. <br/><br/>This research focuses on bolted ring-flange connections, a connection type that plays a crucial role in the...

Offshore wind energy production is increasing rapidly and optimising the design of support structures has the potential to significantly reduce steel and costs. Jacket structures are commonly selected for deeper waters, and the design of these structures is primarily influenced by the fatigue performance of the tubular joints. The fatigue...

Munition articles may be sensitive to case-crushing loading. This is a potential safety hazard since it may lead to accidental detonation. A better understanding of the mechanism causing the munition articles to react can help improve safety. A finite element model combined with post-processing is used to model a Steven test. This thesis...

In the presented work, we have developed a method to analyse the interaction between the wind and membrane structures. The complex behaviour of light weighted membrane structures can induce dynamic and wind effects, so this requires an appropriate method to analyse the structure. When the deformation of membrane structures is large, it becomes...

Energetic materials have widespread applicability in various fields of engineering as propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) is investigating additive manufacturing of solid propellants. As part of this investigation, TNO developed a new polymer binder mix for solid...

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...

Numerical simulations have become an essential part of design in every field of engineering, and the boundaries of technology are pushed further out every year. In structural engineering, the desire to design structures that have complex shapes or that are simply cheaper and more efficient, has necessitated the use of complex numerical...

The service life of concrete structures depend largely on the durability of concrete. The durability of concrete is influenced by mass transport mechanisms that can have severe deteriorating effects. Transport of water in concrete is of paramount importance as water can act as a carrier of ions such as chlorides which can corrode the...

Auxetic materials are increasingly used in the field of sports, defense, bio-medicine, and acoustic-filtering due to their unconventional behavior of exhibiting a negative Poisson's effect. The prospective use of auxetics to mitigate shock and impact forces have proven the relevance of research on auxetics. It becomes of paramount importance to...

Epoxy resins are increasingly used in critical structural components with widespread applications in the transportation, construction and energy industries. The wind energy sector is one of the fastest growing commercial markets for epoxy resins, meaning that the structural behaviour of epoxy resins is becoming a key area of research, especially...

Ceramic is a hard and brittle material with little ductility. It has wide applications in diverse industries viz. metallurgy, atomic energy, electronics, communication, space, military, insulation, biomechanical appliances etc. It is preferred material for armour protection due to its high strength-weight ratio. Its plastic deformation and...

This master thesis is built up around two questions. First: Is it possible to calibrate a ductile failure model, where the strain at failure is a function of stress triaxiality and Lode angle, using only a single SENB specimen? The failure model that is referred to describes local failure in a finite element model to simulate ductile fracture....

Significant part of geotechnical engineering projects involve the problems related to jointed rock<br/>masses. For example, construction of tunnels in rock or stability analysis of the rock slopes. In this<br/>framework, the finite element modelling is often used for problems with complex geometries or<br/>where the analytical solution is...

Structures are considered safe,when they comply with minimum reliability requirementswhich are expressed by a minimum reliability index ¯ in the Eurocodes (EN1990). However, a complete reliability assessment for every structure would be very time-consuming. Therefore in the Eurocode a partial factor approach is utilized. In this research it is...
