This thesis is focusing on the building damage parameters monitoring techniques and the validation of the current damage prediction methodology on building response next to deep excavations. Settlement risk assessments were done in Delft tunnel project to define and control the risk of damaging the adjacent buildings to the tunnel by following...

The lock complex at Terneuzen is the main entrance for ships coming from the Westerscheld and navigating towards the cities of Terneuzen and Ghent. The construction of a new large lock at the lock complex of Terneuzen is planned to increase its capacity. This lock will be built between the existing locks. The ground level is situated at NAP +6...

The subject of this master's thesis stems from a lack of design rules in the current regulations for dolphins located in sloping ground. Dolphins are very common objects in Dutch waterways, of which a large part are located in sloping ground. The lack of design rules causes difficulties between clients and contractors, possible unfavourable...

Artificial ground freezing (AGF) has been applied over 150 years for mining, and was adopted for civil engineering purposes more than 30 years ago. AGF is used as a construction method to provide structural support and to exclude groundwater. Due to 9 percent volumetric expansion of pore water during freezing, soil experiences primary heave. In...

In this thesis different models are considered which can deal with the interaction between pile foundations and structures. This to find the most efficient way to model pile foundation structures whereby both the efficiency of the design as building process are taken into account. This are the models D-Pile (geotechnical), Scia Engineer ...

The Parallel Seismic (PS) test is a non-destructive test that is used to determine the depth of foundations. This thesis explores the use of the PS method to detect flaws in in-situ constructed foundation piles as an alternative to existing testing methods. An acoustic signal is introduced to the head of the pile with a hammer. An elastic wave...

Old quay walls are present in many cities in the Netherlands and characterise itself by a masonry top construction (sometimes with basalt on the water side to prevent erosion of the masonry) with a wooden relieving floor. Rows of wooden piles bear the top construction. Since these quay walls are generally more than 100 years old, extra...

Significant financial investments are made in the offshore wind energy, in a race to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The trend is to install larger capacity wind turbines in deeper waters, further from shore. DTI (2001) states that 30% of this investment is represented by the foundation costs. Senders (2008) and Byrne & Houlsby (2003) found...

This thesis focuses on the stability of slender micro piles with a diameter of 100-400mm in soft soils when used in compressive situations. In the western part of the Netherlands and many other deltaic areas weak clay and peat deposits overlay stiffer sand layers. In these geological conditions flexural buckling may cause a considerable design...

To develop a project in foreign countries, it is possible to use different standards or codes, which if are properly followed, give an acceptable level of reliability. However the different usage can generate different section dimensions and also reliability of the structure can differ. The thesis has the aim to compare the design of a...

Infrastructural projects such as roads and railway tracks are usually built on an embankment of sand or granular material. When building on soft soils, the prevention of differential settlements and resulting damage is traditionally done by including a long consolidation period in the construction process. One method to decrease construction...

Monitoring (geotechnical) constructions is often based upon displacement measurements. However, these measurements do not offer information about the stiffness behaviour of a soil-structure system. A loss of stiffness might be observed as a decrease of the system’s eigenfrequencies. This research investigates if monitoring of ambient vibrations...

Quay walls are costly structures. The still growing sea transport market asks for more, bigger and more cost efficient quay walls. In this research, a new type of quay-wall is investigated: the ‘Tube-Cell Combi-Wall’. The Tube-Cell combi-wall consists of relative large diameter piles with flat sheet piles in between. The large diameter piles are...

The static bearing capacity of most driven piles in The Netherlands is derived using a preinstallation method based on soil parameters. As a result of recent research the reliability of this method decreases; As a result different calculations might become attractive. A method widely used abroad is a Dynamic Load Test(DLT) to calculate the...

Floating piles in soft soil deposits primarily mobilize their bearing capacity by means of shaft resistance. The upper part of the pile triggers a downward traction on the pile shaft whilst the lower part mobilizes the shaft friction in the soil required for the pile bearing capacity. The transition between these two modes of shaft friction is...

Subsea rock installation is often used in offshore engineering. With offshore activities in increasing water depths a flexible fallpipe is currently used to accurately install the rock particles. The total required volume of rock material during installation can be determined by summing the geometrical volume, the operational losses and the...

Construction of deep excavation in densely populated area is not a trivial thing. The execution could induce disturbance to the soil and adjacent buildings. Many researches have analysed building responses to deep excavation or tunnelling projects. But the studies were mostly limited to buildings with shallow foundations. The importance of...

This thesis focuses on the behaviour of micropiles under axial tensile loading and modelling of the pile head displacement of micropiles. In the behaviour of micropiles, defined in load and corresponding pile head displacement, the development of the shear stress along the pile shaft is found to be of leading influence. This development of the...

An increase over time in bearing capacity of displacement piles is often found in the field. This phenomenon is called pile set-up. The increase is predominantly caused by an increase in shaft resistance and is observed even until 1000 days after installation. In the Dutch situation, a proposed tightening of the design standard for pile...
