Cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam are located on top of a compressible clay layer. Most of the buildings in these cities are founded on the foundation layer above the compressible layer. Therefore this compressible layer can induce problems when the soil pressure increases significantly due to the weight of the high-rise buildings. This...

A research into the influence of the main parameters in the preliminary structural design on the wind-induced dynamic behaviour, including soil-structure interaction effects, of high-rise buildings in the Netherlands. The dynamic behaviour becomes more and more important for higher and more slender structure. The dynamic response is controlled...

This thesis ‘A decision support model for analysing the reuse potential of hollow-core slab floor components’ describes the development of a decision support model to investigate the reuse potential of a structural building component. For this research, the hollow-core slab floor component is chosen as the structural building component to be...

Due to gas extraction, seismic activity has become a major problem in the province of Groningen. Existing buildings are not designed to withstand seismic loads and are likely to be structurally unsafe. Two storey terraced houses with concrete floors and large openings in the ground floor façade walls are onsidered vulnerable, since the in-plane...

Timber structures are experiencing a revelation in the build environment due to new technologies and production techniques. However, the longest spans created with timber structures still don't compete with the span widths of structures made of steel. This thesis provides a preliminary design for the long-span football stadium roof structure of...

This research investigated in which ways the material environmental impact of the main load-bearing structure of a high-rise building can be reduced. To determine this material environmental impact, the shadow price for each material and product has been determined by using ten environmental impact categories. One of these categories is global...

Currently there are a lot of contract types available for building projects. It is not always clear beforehand what type of contract a client should choose for his project. The goal of this study is to solve this problem by advising clients which type of contract to use for moveable bridge projects. Therefore, the following research question...

This thesis focusses on the application of vertical profiled mortar connections in precast concrete shear walls that are built up with a stacked element configuration. The goal of the project is to develop a practical modelling approach in order to be able to apply the connections in a FEM model for structural analyses. For this purpose several...

This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

The trend of the slender and high-rise building has made the structure prone to dynamic loading. This thesis is focused on the dynamic behavior of the high-rise building subjected to wind action. The acceleration becomes a limiting criterion in designing such structure which can be categorized as the comfort criteria of the building. Nausea and...
