In the past decades, gas productions in the province of Groningen in The Netherlands have caused a significant amount of shallow human-induced earthquakes. Its building stock has shown to be highly vulnerable to these unexpected events. Among various building typologies, damage has been reported for approximately 12.9% of the churches in...

Liquid storage tanks are used worldwide to contain liquids such as drinking water, fuel and chemicals. Loss of containment during a seismic event can add to an earthquake’s destructiveness by posing a fire hazard, spilling toxic substances or reducing the supply of drinking water. It is therefore important that they remain operational at a pre...

Size effects influence the behavior of composites and have a great effect on their properties such as strength, type of failure, etc. The effects of size of the specimen on the behavior of composite laminates were studied based on numerical analyses of sharp and blunt notched [45/90/-45/0] 4s carbon/epoxy composite laminates. Five different...

The aim of this thesis was to objectively and quantitatively assess the accuracy and robustness of two-dimensional sequentially linear analysis (SLA) in comparison to nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA), for a range of experiments of reinforced concrete structures with proportional and non-proportional loading schemes. Non-proportional...

Given its geographical location and history, water defense is of utmost importance for the Netherlands. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) offers a promising approach for system identification of hydraulic structures in this water defense system. The aim of SHM is to set sensors on structures and use the monitored responses to identify...

An organized process is necessary to ensure that the building is built on time and within budget. This does not always go well however and four major difficulties can arise. One of the current solutions is performing variant studies. Designing variants is costly however, which limits the amount of analysed variants. The focus is set on improving...

The use of the Classical Laminate Theory (CLT) is limited to laminates where all the fibres in a ply are oriented in the plane of the laminate. In some applications, it is possible that the plies will start at the bottom of a laminate and end at the top of the laminate. This means an inclination is added to the plies, which creates an extra...

Since the exploitation of wind as a renewable energy resource, jack-up vessels equipped with more than three independent legs are increasingly employed to transport and install the components of offshore wind turbines. By lowering the movable legs the vessel is able to elevate the hull from sea water level. In elevated position the vessel...

The SBR richtlijn A states threshold values for the vibration speeds causing a 1% probability of failure of masonry structures. These threshold values are very useful for structural designers, because during the construction of new structures or the demolition of existing structures, it is important to know if these structural vibrations can...

Gas extraction has caused increased seismic activity in the area of Groningen, bringing about considerable damage to houses. The houses are generally old masonry houses with flexible timber diaphragms. It is of importance to assess the response of these houses in order to apply proper retrofit measures. There has been substantial research on...

The rapid development in statistics, information technology, and computational power have en- abled numerous innovative methods to emerge in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) for structural damage detection, both in practical application and research. The intention of such methods is to use the data obtained from the monitoring system to...

An increase in apparent mode II fracture toughness in Fiber Reinforced Polymers has been found from modified Transverse Crack Tension (mTCT) tests with compressive stresses added orthogonal to the delamination plane. Numerical reproduction of these results has not yet led to a good understanding of the reasons for this behavior. Currently, an...

This master thesis is built up around two questions. First: Is it possible to calibrate a ductile failure model, where the strain at failure is a function of stress triaxiality and Lode angle, using only a single SENB specimen? The failure model that is referred to describes local failure in a finite element model to simulate ductile fracture....

Structures are considered safe,when they comply with minimum reliability requirementswhich are expressed by a minimum reliability index ¯ in the Eurocodes (EN1990). However, a complete reliability assessment for every structure would be very time-consuming. Therefore in the Eurocode a partial factor approach is utilized. In this research it is...
