Orthotropic Steel Decks (OSDs) are widely used in various types of steel bridges due to their benefits of light weight, high load bearing capacity and speedy construction. Although many improvements in aspects of design, fabrication, inspection, and maintenance have been achieved over the years for such bridge decks, fatigue remains a...

Injection Bolts have been preferred for several reasons over other alternatives for the rehabilitation of old riveted steel bridges since 1970’s. More recently they have been used to obtain slip critical shear connections in new structures such as new bridges, large roofs, storm barriers and other structures exposed to cyclic loading. In...

Fatigue is an important issue for orthotropic steel deck (OSD) bridges and therefore a design criterium. Cracks will initiate at several locations of the bridge deck. It is likely that a crack at the trough web to deck plate joint at the crossbeam will initiate first. This crack initiates at the weld root and propagates through the deck plate. A...

Wind turbines constitute a sustainable and effective solution to produce energy using wind power. Offshore wind turbines are becoming of special interest and more demanding with continuously increased diameters. However, their design poses great challenges, since the installation and fabrication tolerances in combination with high cyclic loading...

The interest in high strength steel (HSS) shows an increasing trend mainly due to its high yield strength, low weight to strength ratio, decreasing costs of the base material and fabrication. The proposed 2020 version of the Eurocode 3 part 1-8, still under discussion at the time of writing of this thesis, covers steel with yield strength up to...

The aim of this thesis is to present a design for a bicycle and pedestrian bridge which meets the requirements of Circular Economy; by incorporating strategies such as design for disassembly and modularity a structure is created which improves upon the long-term value of existing bridges. Circular Economy has in recent years begun to replace the...

The building and construction sector play a key role in achieving a sustainable development. In European countries, buildings are responsible for 40-45% of energy consumption, leading to significant amounts of CO2 emissions. The implementation of reusable structures lead to less waste and harmful emissions to the environment. The main purpose of...

There are several methods to perform fatigue assessment as described by the Eurocode 3 and the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The codes establish the relation between stress ranges and their respective number of cycles until failure of the detail. This method is called S-N curves, however this is based mainly on nominal stresses. A...

More offshore wind projects are being developed. Shallow locations are more occupied and a tendency to deeper water and to larger wind turbines is seen. These create more bending moment which can be more easily resisted by jacket substructures. The state of the art installation process of a jacket is as follows. The foundation piles are driven...

Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is a new construction material that often is used for pedestrian bridges. It offers a good strength-weight relation, a long-term durability and slender bridge shapes. Slenderness has effect on dynamic behaviour of the construction and vibrations are common for these bridges. Hand calculations are commonly used for...

Today, society is becoming more and more aware of the environment and the (negative) influence we have on it. Especially the current workings of our economy have a detrimental effect on the environment. To reduce these effects, a transition is being made towards a circular economy. The construction sector plays a big role in the degradation: in...

Orthotropic steel decks are widely used in bridge construction nowadays, especially in case of long span bridges. One of the main problems of bridges that utilize this technology is the susceptibility to fatigue failure. Cyclic loading due to wheel loads, in combination with the complex network of welded details, make such types of decks prone...

Standardized column splices consist of bolted end-plate connection or bolted/welded cover plate splice connection. In this thesis a non-symmetrical column splice connection that uses a combination of bolted end-plate splice and cover plate splice is studied. End-plate column splice may interfere with installation of cladding elements and may...

The stay cables of the north bridge of the Galecopperbrug are reaching the end of their life span. Rijkswaterstaat, which is responsible for the bridges, needs a reliable Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) method to monitor the current state of the stay cables. At the moment, Rijkswaterstaat experiences issues with defining the state and the...

The research concentrated on a behavior of the deep composite deck ComFlor210 under a concentrated force. The distribution of a concentrated force in ComFlor210 was studied numerically and analytically. <br/>The finite element model of a composite slab with 5.4m span showed good agreement with test results in the elastic stage. The parametric...

Many movable bridges, built in the 1950’s and 1960’s, reach their end of service life or do not meet future traffic demands. Renovation of those bridge, if possible, is preferred over newly built from an economical point of view. Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) decks prove to be excellent for retrofitting bridge decks compared to traditional...

A composite slab consisting of in-situ casted reinforced concrete on profiled sheeting, which is connected to steel beams by shear connectors, is a common structural flooring system in office and multi-storey car park buildings. The headed welded studs, which are most widely used shear connectors, are inexpensive and easy to install because they...

Sustainability concerns steer the construction sector towards adopting a circular economy philosophy. Steel-concrete composite beams are extensively used in multi-story buildings and bridges due to their competitive construction and efficient material use. Currently the composite action is mainly achieved by headed shear connectors welded to the...

Rapid extraction of gas in the north-eastern Groningen province of the Netherlands has led to an increase in the occurrence of induced earthquakes in the region due to subsidence of gas bearing sandstone layers. This process manifests itself in the form of ground motions at the surface. Netherlands, historically being an inactive tectonic zone,...
