The main question of this thesis is the result of a survey by ‘provincie Zuid-Holland’ (PZH), that has developed a ‘uniform model’ for the assessment of the structural safety of existing prefabricated culverts. PZH is considering the possibility of using generic parameters to decide on the strength of existing culverts in the area. The province...

A high number of concrete bridges that were built in the Netherlands around half a century ago and which had a transversely prestressed thin deck, nowadays raise a series of questions regarding their structural integrity. This is because their service life has been affected over time by a substantial rise in the number of vehicles that transit...

This thesis aims to analyse the conservatism in the current Dutch recommendations on the external friction angle 𝛿 of diaphragm walls: 𝛿 = 𝑚𝑖𝑛[𝜙, 20°] (for curved slip surfaces) (CUR/COB, 2010), by means of an experimental investigation. Based on literature, two sources of conservatism are identified: 1) filter cake contamination by excavated...

Numerous structures constructed in 60’s and 70’s are now reaching their design service life and require reassessment to assure safety of users, reliability and economical exploitation. As a consequence, an adequate structural assessment of existing bridges has recently become a major subject of scientific work commissioned by the authorities in...

In the last few decades great progression has been made in the research and development of a fairly new type of concrete called ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). This high-tech material has excellent material properties compared to conventional concrete and has the potential to make more slender and lighter structures. However the material...

Advanced Cementitious Materials (ACM’s) are products with materials found in conventional concrete (cement, silica fume, sand, superplasticizer, and water) plus distinctive materials like fibers (steel, carbon) and quartz. The superiority of ACM’s in terms of strength, ductility, and durability marks it as high potential replacement of...

The intent of US design codes is to design buildings with uniform reliability regardless of the building type, location, or design approach. However, it is unlikely that risk-consistency is achieved for different design approaches, as differences and discrepancies between these design methodologies exist. This study focused on the structural...

Incremental bridge launching is one of the many ways in which a bridge can be constructed. In The Netherlands this method is not often used. This may be explained by the fact, that there are not many suitable locations for application of this method. Incremental bridge launching is profitable for long bridges and can only be used for straight...

Building and maintenance of the railway track and its sub- and superstructures in the Netherlands are commissioned by ProRail. In addition to the Eurocode ProRail prescribes a wide range of regulations and guidelines related to railway track. Amongst these are a few specifically for the design of civil structures. With respect to prestressed...

The main objective of this research is to test the feasibility of prefabricated concrete as a construction material for (railway) underpasses. By means of a literature study the most important aspects for the use of prefabricated concrete are analyzed, as well as the execution aspects for an underpass crossing a railway. Based on the findings...

The scope of this study is to investigate the possibilities for applying Gravity Base Foundations at larger water depths. To do so the influence of various parameters for the foundation and turbine are investigated as well as the properties of the sub soil. It is concluded that it is technically possible to construct concrete Gravity Base...

In the past many viaducts in the Netherlands have been built with precast box beam girders. Precast box beam girders have many advantages compared to other types of girders. One of these advantages is the property of being torsion stiff. Because of boundary conditions some viaducts are skew and not straight. A few examples of these boundary...

A study has been performed in the application of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the new Leiden Bridge. It has been compared with normal strength and high performance concrete. The goal was to investigate if UHPC could be used as a serious alternative next to other types of concrete for a design in bridges. The research showed that...

By making use of HSC the box girders of Spanbeton are designed more slender. Use was made of additional prestressing and additional stirrups. Steel fibers were used to increase the ductility of the HSC. Besides the ductility, the steel fibers were used to increase the shear capacity of the concrete. Due to this increase, less stirrups were needed.

The focus of this study is to research if ecc/frc is applicable for integral bridges. Integral bridge are bridges without or partly without intermediaries. A bridge normally consist of a substructure, superstructure and intermediaries. The superstructure comprises the bridge deck and the substructure consist of the abutments, piers and the...

The application of prefabricated and usually prestressed concrete elements has increased since mid-20th century. These elements are at the point of reaching the end of their life span, are subjected to damages or a change in functionality. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate their structural safety. In many cases, existing structures do not...

Nowadays more and more slender concrete footbridges are designed. Footbridges are designed thinner to increase esthetic value, as well as incorporate sustainability and to reduce building costs, with a consequence that the eigenfrequency of the bridge can drop so low that it may fall into a range of frequencies that is susceptible to vibrations...

Introduction Many researchers have been discovered that bridge deck slabs which were designed to fail in bending, mostly fail under punching shear mode at a higher load than the expected for bending, because of the effect of in-plane compressive membrane forces, induced by the lateral restrained boundary conditions. Punching and bending failure...
