Inner–city quay walls fulfil a number of very important functions where the retention of water is the most important one observed from a structural perspective. Despite their importance, not all of these structures are very well maintained, especially the older ones. Each municipality has their own maintenance regime, depending on the allocated...

In practice, many structures among which quay walls are designed according the Dutch national guidelines (CUR). Dutch national practical guidelines (NPR), with guidelines for renovation, is still in development for the building industry. These guidelines follow the Dutch Norms (NEN) and Annexes. The guidelines propose procedures in which newly...

During the design phase of a foundation installation aspects are easily overlooked. When this aspect is overlooked a foundation element risks not reaching its design depth or getting damaged during the installation process. As a result significant delays and/or costs could occur. A driveability study gives insight in the installation aspects of...

The design and construction of quay walls are processes that exist for many centuries and have become more complex and challenging in current engineering practice. For the design of quay walls a number of guidelines and design codes have been developed over the years. These give the requirements that a quay wall structure should meet, but do...

The design and reassessment of quays is subject to uncertainties. Examples of these uncertainties are the soil parameters, soil behavior and the current state of the structural parts. Especially in the reassessment of existing structures it is hard to prove a quay to be safe. In this thesis Bayesian updating is used as a method to reduce this...

Quay structures play an important role in society. How much load these structures can withstand however is not certain. This MSc thesis contains insight into the load capacity of the old Amazonehaven and the current SIF quay structures. Both are quay structures which use a combined sheet pile wall, a reinforced concrete relieving platform, M.V....

The city of Rotterdam and its port have been constantly growing over the last decades. As the port is ensuring a place in the top ten ports in the world, the city of Rotterdam is changing as well, growing and becoming a more international town. The municipality of Rotterdam is planning to build a 3rd bridge that will cross the Nieuwe waterweg...

The first quay walls were constructed in 2400 BC and were constructed with bricks. Since then, the quay walls have developed a lot. The quay walls nowadays are constructed out of steel, concrete or a combination of both materials. An upcoming material in the field of hydraulic engineering is fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP has several...

In the Netherlands almost 17.500 kilometers of primary flood defenses protect the flood prone areas from inundation. These flood defenses are designed and periodically assessed according to certain design standards which require an average probability of exceedance of 1/1.250 or 1/10.000 per year. From the results of recent assessments, it was...

Since 1986, the northern part of the Netherlands, particularly the Province of Groningen, experienced around 1000 registered minor earthquakes. The cause of these earthquakes is gas extraction. This type of earthquake, caused by human influence, is called induced earthquakes. The Netherlands is not located in a historically seismic active area,...

Liquefaction may have large influence on performance of anchored quay walls and is important to include in seismic design. Design codes provide evaluation methods that provide hardly any insight in the actual development of excess pore pressures and the don’t consider soil structure interaction. There is a need for tools that include these...

Without doubt the need to give a founded estimation of the remaining life span is needed. In the NEN 8700 and 8701 and the guideline of Rijkswaterstaat (RBK) a way to determine the structural reliability is given. The corresponding estimate of the remaining life span is based on but not equal to the suggested reference period of the loads. These...

In this research the reliability of dikes are studied that are influenced by the presence of buildings. Along many Dutch dikes (residential) buildings are present. These buildings may influence the reliability of the dike positevely and or negatively. In this study a probabilistic method is developed to determine the influence of a building,...

The United States of America – and more specific the state of Illinois – are dealing with a problem of Asian carps spreading from inward waterways to the Great Lakes. The Asian carp was originally brought to America to be used in study?s on agricultural pounds, but escaped after series of flooding. The Asian carp has no natural enemies in the...

Bank protections are currently constructed with stone, wood, concrete and steel. NETICS has introduced a sustainable and commercially very attractive alternative called the GEOWALL. The goal of this study is to find a viable field of application within the quay structures by considering the arising challenges of a larger scale wall. Additionally...

The stability of any structure is an important aspect in civil engineering. The subject of this thesis is the stability of the quay structure at the Amazonehaven, port of Rotterdam. The reason for writing this report is to investigate the safety and stability of the quay structure, which was built in 1990, throughout its service lifetime while...

The persistent increase of container vessel dimensions requires ports to adapt their wet infrastructure in order to compete with their competitors. However, in some cases waterway tunnels are expected to restrict the maximum depth. The Beneluxtunnel in Rotterdam is an example of such a tunnel. To allow more depth, the possibility of lowering...

The graduation thesis focuses on providing insight in the consequences of subsiding ground on soil anchors. With the years, the bars of an anchored sheet pile walls for example, can be unfavourably loaded due to subsiding soil. As a result of these lateral loads, the bar will deform and elongate, causing the stresses to increase. The...
