Jiang, Luxi (author)
In the construction industry, composite structures combining concrete and steel are commonly employed in floor systems due to their exceptional performance in compression and tension. With a growing emphasis on sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), this thesis introduces a novel concept: a modularised floor system consisting of...

Numerous traffic bridges have been constructed over the last 150 years. Because bridges are commonly built based on an expected lifetime of 75 to 100 years, a large quantity of bridges are reaching the end of their design lifetime, or even are far overdue. To ensure these bridges remain operational without experiencing catastrophic failures,...

The current understanding of auxetic metamaterials in structural engineering applications is limited. Auxetic materials exhibit lateral contraction under compressive loads, possessing a negative Poisson's ratio. The research addresses this gap, focusing on the use of auxetics for steel reinforcement in structural concrete elements to enhance...

Over the past few decades, the Netherlands has built numerous steel railway bridges to improve its infrastructure. The repeated loading from railway traffic makes steel bridges susceptible to fatigue damage. The stress ranges at fatigue-prone locations are generally higher in railway bridges than in road traffic bridges. Due to the limited space...

The increase in demand for renewable energy has resulted in higher demand for wind energy. To meet this requirement, the wind turbine sizes are increasing rapidly, and this results in increasing load on the connections between MP-TP and the segments of the tower.<br/>This research focuses on traditional L-flange connection and novel C1 wedge...

The field of wind energy has experienced significant expansion and development driven by the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Offshore wind turbines have become increasingly popular leading to larger turbines with greater energy output to match the growing demand. The most common foundation type of offshore wind turbines is the monopile...

This research aims to investigate the influence of Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation on small surface load distribution on corrugated steel roofing sheets. PIR foams are used for thermal insulation in industrial buildings. The distribution of surface loads induced by solar panels support structure might be altered by PIR foams. This is...

Welding is a widely used process in various industries for joining materials, but it can introduce several complexities that affect the mechanical properties of the welded components. In particular, the presence of pores within the welded material can have significant implications for fatigue resistance, residual stresses, and overall structural...

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...

The building and construction industry is one of the main polluting sectors contributing to climate change, and is responsible for around 37% of global CO2 emissions. A circular approach is needed to address the global demand for construction materials and resources in a sustainable way. Steel is a commonly used material in construction and...

Gates are an essential part of navigational locks, as they are responsible for creating a water barrier and can be repositioned to allow passage for maritime transit. Most lock gates are made of steel but a recent project in Sweden challenged the status quo by constructing the first stainless steel lock gate. The main question of this thesis...

The demand for offshore wind energy has never been higher, yet the number of ideal areas for wind farm installations is decreasing. As a result, larger wind turbines are being placed in deeper waters, which poses opportunities for floating foundations. However, due to the industry's inability to scale up the production of relatively expensive...

Rijkswaterstaat aims to build circularly from 2030 onward, with the purpose of having a fully circular economy by 2050. Therefore, the aim of this study is to design a reusable modular superstructure, with a small span, which can replace an existing so-called volstortligger superstructure. This is a structure that Dura Vermeer often uses and it...

The use of welding is widely adopted to assemble structural components in the construction industry for many years. To ensure safety of these welded components, many fatigue tests have been conducted on many different shapes and configurations of welded connections to precisely assess the fatigue<br/>life. However, testing real-size structures...

In this thesis, an automated buckling check method has been developed and validated for thin plated stiffened structures used in stressed skin topsides.<br/><br/>Thin plated stiffened structures are widely used in, for example, aircraft, bridges and ships. Recently, it has become competitive to use this type of construction to offshore topsides...

Wrzosek, Filip (author)
A series of critical transmission lattice towers failures due to severe ice and wind loads forced German utility companies to reassess the structural stability of their power grid infrastructure. During the structural reassessment process, a problem related to an outdated or even missing documentation of the in-use infrastructure occurred. This...

The significant adverse contribution of the construction industry to greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource depletion has to be reduced. Regarding jetty platform structures, this challenge can be faced by designing for reusability, a promising concept for environmental impact reduction. However, this principle is not yet being widely...

The evolution of ships requires larger depth or larger terrain loads in ports. Therefore, the existing quay walls require reinforcements. An effective way of reinforcing the structure are underwater anchors, requiring holes in existing sheet piles at the location of significant bending moment. Since this is a new area of expertise, the influence...
