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...

Plated girders have been extensively used in steel bridge construction since the 19th century. Over the past century, the effective width method was developed to take the nonlinearities resulting from shear lag and plate buckling into account. This method leads to having a cross-section with a reduced area in which the stress can linear be...

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...

This Master Thesis research is carried out to investigate the most efficient re-mountable timber car park in terms of feasibility and structural performance. Applying the re-mountability principle with a sustainable material like timber is important to help the construction industry tackle environmental problems like global warming. Specifically...

This research investigates the feasibility and potential of utilizing BFRP floors in modular buildings as a low environmental impact and cost-effective alternative to conventional floors. A modular building is introduced as a case study, the Natural Pavilion in Almere, to bring focus to the research and set a baseline for the requirements of the...

With the building and construction sector accounting for a significant portion of final energy use and emissions, and society’s increasing focus on environmental awareness and improvements, the impor- tance of sustainable construction has never been greater. The utilisation of timber in construction offers clear sustainability benefits and has...

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...

An analytical study of an energy-based approach to damping of a clamped timber column in free vibration under axial, lateral and torsional loading conditions was conducted. Backed by experiments it was confirmed that an energy-based approach, as proposed by Sánchez Gómez (2018), could describe the energy dissipation in a laterally vibrating...

The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

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...

A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

With the effects of climate change being more and more frequent, the European union, and other governments world-wide are looking for sustainable alternatives for processes and products that are part of the daily requirements of people. Among these requirements, the construction industry plays a vital role, as it accounts for the consumption of...

For centuries timber has been the most commonly used material for constructions. All over the world examples of timber structures that date back from a few centuries are still standing today. The Netherlands feature about 60,000 national monuments with internally timber structures. These timber structures often need strengthening due to...

Pile tip damage due to impact with an object (boulder) during the driving process of monopiles is of main concern in the offshore wind sector. Numerical modelling could accurately describe this failure mechanism and used as a tool in practice but also for the development of appropriate guidelines. In this research project, dynamic Finite Element...

Ageing of infrastructure leads to an increasing demand for new technologies and design solutions in current bridge engineering. Over the last decades the traffic intensity has grown tremendously, while design codes and regulations have become stricter. Many current steel bridges realised in The Netherlands suffer from fatigue problems....

Injection Bolted Connections (IBC) are connections in which the cavity between the bolts and the plates (hole clearance) is filled with two-component epoxy resin. The oversized hole clearances allow for the reuse of all the structural elements in composite structures. Due to larger hole clearance, the possibility of slip occurrence in the...

One of the basic principles of the design of structures is that they must be sufficiently safe and meet the required reliability requirements. In Eurocode NEN-EN 1990 specific minimum reliability index values are defined, which depend on a certain reference period and reliability class. To ensure that the structures meet the reliability...

In the course of this thesis, a research has been conducted to the application of fracture mechanics on an othotropic steel deck (OSD). Obtaining accurate predictions of crack path and fatigue life assessment were the main objectives for this thesis. As 3D crack propagation modelling in orthotropic steel decks is an arduous task, simpler studies...

Orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) are susceptible to fatigue failure due to cyclic loading by heavy traffic passing the deck. These cyclic loads can cause fatigue cracks in the rib-to-deck joint. In and around the joint residual stresses are present due to the welding process. In this thesis, the effects of residual stresses on the fatigue crack...

Timber bridges are much applied structures in the Dutch landscape. In contrast to the other two most common building materials, concrete and steel, the use of timber is however almost exclusively limited to bridges for lighter traffic, e.g. pedestrians and bicycles. Examples of timber traffic bridges in Germany, Scandinavia and even in the...
