The main objective of this research is to understand the development of arch action in a single T-beam acting as part of the bridge system, ignoring the distribution of the load in transverse direction. As the beam is loaded, several mechanisms work simultaneously in the bridge system, resulting in enhanced ultimate load bearing capacity of the...

In the past, many researches on the topic of size effect on concrete structures were mainly focused on the phenomenon of size effect in flexural cracking. The result of those studies can be found today in the concrete structure design specifications of well-known building codes, such as the Eurocode. Nevertheless, the inclusions of the results...

Shell is a popular form of structures as it can withstand relative large load with small thickness, which satisfies the aesthetic preference. Due to the curvatures of shell structures, shell can carry the distributed load as membrane forces instead of bending moments. Due to the small thickness, shell structures are highly sensitive to...

Müller Verpress piles are driven displacement piles which inject grout at the enlarged tip of the pile into the surrounding soil. Performed full-scale tests were not able to be loaded the pile upon failure, as the pile can resist forces which are significantly larger than its design capacity. This type of pile is known for its large tensile...

The bridges built in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are reaching the end of their originally service life. Many bridges require reassessment. In 2009 the former ministry of “Volkshuisvesting, Ruimtelijke Ordening en Milieubeheer”(Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment) carried out a study about the state of the bridges, following several...

With the arrival of the Eurocode, the calculations regarding shear resistance, have become increasingly conservative compared to former concrete standards. For example in Voorschriften Beton 1974 (VB 74), a former concrete standard, a shear resistance combination of concrete, stirrups and prestress was allowed. Whereas the Eurocode assumes the...

Collapse of partially or fully submerged river bridges as a result of river floods is investigated. To this end, post-failure analysis of a bridge in Japan’s Iwate Prefecture that collapsed in 2013 is conducted. Failure of this particular bridge is atypical because piers have also toppled over, which can be attributed to the spread footing...

Bridges are a crucial part of the dense Dutch highway network. Almost 50% of the current bridges are built between 1960 and 1980 for an intended service life of 50 years and thus they might reach the end of their lifetime in the near future. This strongly indicates that a large challenge can be expected regarding infrastructural replacement.<br/...
