Numerous structural failure incidents have occurred in the past years. It was found that current methods, such as NEN 2767, fall short in guaranteeing the structural safety of existing buildings. Although structural failure incidents infrequently result in casualties, there are also social and economic consequences that impact both building user...

To stick to climate change targets and reduce global carbon emissions, the building sector needs to adopt a circular economy. In the steel sector, reuse or elements can reduce carbon emissions which are created in today's steel scrap recycling practices. This thesis contributes to closing the knowledge gap on design, costs, and environmental...

Within the Netherlands, the building industry is startled every couple of years by an impactful structure collapse. Even though over the years, a large amount of structural failure investigation reports and studies have provided abundant lessons, regulations, and good practices, structural failures still occur occasionally. The question arises...

Mining activities at the Groningen gas field are causing earthquakes which result in building damage. This has started a discussion on what type of damage is caused by earthquakes. These discussions are typical in the forensic engineering field, especially in complex cases. The problem is the lack of regulations, in terms of standardizations and...

With increasing adoption of modular construction in the residential sector, its adoption in the Dutch healthcare sector is studied. Whilst the initial costs can be higher, this method of construction claims to have cost benefits over conventional construction. These are the benefits of construction speed and residual value at the end of lifespan...

On April 15th, 2019 a devastating fire burned down Notre Dame de Paris and left the cathedral without its central spire and ancient gable roof, better known as The Forest. The required reconstruction initiated a global debate between architects, engineers, and other stakeholders. The discussion was put to an end by the French authorities, who...

The aim of this research is to make the early design process more efficient. This is done with a parametric model, which compares high-rise stability systems. The research is focused on the stability systems shear walls, core, outrigger and tube. All systems are executed in concrete cast-in-situ, in the range from 100 to 250 m. The parametric...

Building failure incidents are occurring within the Netherlands and these incidents can be a valuable source of technical data regarding improvements in structural safety. This research has attempted to utilize this information gained to develop a tool to aid the building construction sector in identifying hazards during building construction...

In the Netherlands, there are generally two categories of structural forensic investigations. The first category are extensive investigations with the goal to learn from failure by investigating all aspects: technical, human and organisational. The second category are investigations that focus mainly on technical causes and the investigation...

In most of city centres in the Netherlands, there is a growing demand for residential housing. However, as most of the land is occupied by existing buildings, developers recur to demolish and build higher buildings, in order to fulfil the urban need. Even though demolition, may be the simplest option in technical and economic terms, it can also...

The number of terrorist attacks on public places has substantially grown over the past two decades. More than half of these attacks were bombings. Past bombing events have shown that 45% of the injuries is caused by glass breakage. . The building engineering practice could help reducing the consequences, by retrofitting glass facades to mitigate...

is thesis focuses on the behavior of the CD20 building system during an earthquake. In order to calculate the forces on the system, first a detailed model was constructed of the characteristic CD20 connection in Diana. This model was used to determine the stiffness of the connection. This stiffness was then transferred into a model of the whole...

In the Netherlands almost 17.500 kilometers of primary flood defenses protect the flood prone areas from inundation. These flood defenses are designed and periodically assessed according to certain design standards which require an average probability of exceedance of 1/1.250 or 1/10.000 per year. From the results of recent assessments, it was...

The possibility of multi-hazards, the occurrence of two or more (natural) hazards at once or shortly after another in the same location, can lead to an increased risk of structural damage and life loss. In the Netherlands, seismically-unprepared houses are especially vulnerable to newly expected earthquakes in the region of Groningen. These...

The importance of energy and sustainability issues related to buildings and built environment is constantly increasing. Developed countries are already dealing with these issues by adjusting their building codes and by introducing sustainability assessment methods as an important part of building projects. But how can developing countries with...

Introduction The daily life of inhabitants of Hagonoy, the Philippines, is affected by tidal and fluvial floods. Ground subsidence is the main cause of a worsening trend of these floods. Excessive uncontrolled groundwater subtraction creates a ground level decrease up to 5 cm per year. In combination with yearly six to nine typhoons raging over...

In this research the reliability of dikes are studied that are influenced by the presence of buildings. Along many Dutch dikes (residential) buildings are present. These buildings may influence the reliability of the dike positevely and or negatively. In this study a probabilistic method is developed to determine the influence of a building,...

Modular construction is the on-site assembly (installation and connection) of factory made units (Lawson et al., 2014). It allows fabrication of structural components to be moved from the building site to controlled environments. Ballast Nedam adopted modular construction as a key business strategy for the future (Ballast Nedam, 2014). Plug &...

This study investigates four numerical models to approximate the static and dynamic resistance of an unreinforced masonry wall loaded in one-way out-of-plane bending. From validation with experimental data it was found that for the combination of shell and interface elements with discrete cracking the static and dynamic behaviour of unreinforced...
