In the last decades, climate change is causing our environment to change rapidly, unprecedented in recent history. Civil engineering structures are dependent on the deteriorating environment they are situated in. Changes can cause an increase in loading due to, for example, extreme weather events or alter the structure’s resistance by, for...

The demand for wind energy has led to the need for larger offshore wind turbines, which require larger monopiles for support. Vibratory pile driving is a common technique for installing these monopiles, but current engineering models are designed for smaller diameter monopiles and may not be applicable to larger ones. Additionally, the vibratory...

The light and frequent earthquakes in the north of the Netherlands, particularly in the province of Groningen, have recently exposed the unreinforced masonry structures to seismic activities. Since these structures do not adhere to seismic regulations, they are considered vulnerable to seismicity. The ultimate state capacity of the structures is...

Two-bladed offshore wind turbines regained interest in finding the most profitable way of generating wind energy. Wind industry companies demand the safe operation of two-bladed offshore wind turbines. To guarantee safe operation, the companies perform operational modal analyses to investigate modal properties variation which might be allocated...

Climate change is changing the world. Where previously efficient use of materials was mainly applied to realize cost savings, this can also help to reduce the footprint of a construction. There is a rather direct and obvious relationship between the amount of material required in a construction and its environmental impact. Of course, the...

The demand to build with wood and other bio-based materials has increased rapidly the last decade, due to the ambition to build more with sustainable building materials. One of the major challenges in building with wood, is to account for the lower strength and stiffness perpendicular to the grain. Wood is an anisotropic material, meaning the...

To climb up the circular economy hierarchy and meet the goals of the European Green policy in the construction sector, steel profiles may be reused instead of recycled, which is currently the most common practice. An overarching digital database to efficiently match supply and demand of reclaimed structural elements will stimulate their...

Human-induced rhythmic loading is an increasingly critical aspect in the design process of civil engineering structures such as sports stadiums and floors accommodating gym and aerobic classes. There are two main reasons for this trend. First, structures are becoming more slender with improvements in materials and construction techniques and...

This study presents the structural response of a Submerged Floating Tunnel (SFT) subjected to earthquake loading and other relevant static loading types. The SFT is a competitive solution for crossings of deep seas, canals and fjords, as it is submerged in water and floats at a fixed submersion depth. It is supported by its buoyancy and tethers,...

In the Netherlands, there is an increasing need to create residential spaces in its already crowded cities to accommodate the growing population. Constructing high-rise buildings is one way to try to solve the issue. However, high-rise buildings are sensitive to wind-induced vibrations. The accurate prediction of the dynamic response is...

A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

As the world's population keeps increasing and the rate of urbanizations increases, The rate at which high-rise structures are being built is skyrocketing. In the Netherlands, this is no different. It is expected that the amount of high-rise structures taller than 70 meters will more than double in the coming 20 years. As these structures become...

Cracks in masonry structures are a cause for concern as they signal a potential lack of functionality and/or aesthetics. It thus becomes important to identify the cause of damage in order to mitigate it and to prevent its occurrence in the future. Similarities in crack patterns may correlate to similarities in the damage cause. Currently, the...

The gas production in the Groningen gas field of the Netherlands has caused a significant amount of shallowhuman induced earthquakes. Among various building typologies, Groningen is home to many Dutch historical churches constructed by unreinforced masonry which has shown to be highly vulnerable to these earthquakes. From the perspective of...

An important subject in the research on the behaviour of railway structures is the validation of numerical models by means of in-track measurements. Many forms of track measurements have taken place all over the world, mainly in the sense of strain and acceleration measurements, but a more unexplored area is that of the direct measurement of...

Technology improvements and growing maturity of the offshore wind industry have resulted in significant cost reductions and rise in demand. More can be achieved by focusing on improving the understanding of key design areas of an offshore wind turbine (OWT). Since fatigue is one of the main design criteria for offshore structures and little is...

This era of science and technology has seen widespread use of composite materials for a variety of applications ranging from the defense sector to the transport and construction sectors. Composites are mainly comprised of fibres impregnated with a polymeric matrix and have a superior strength to weight ratio as compared to traditional...

As buildings get taller and lighter, structural engineers are increasingly faced with the consequences of the dynamic response of high-rise buildings to wind. Damping is an important property for the dynamic response of high-rise structures, but is a combination of many mechanisms, which makes it a complex phenomenon to account for in the...

Theshortage in housing and office spaces, combined with the desire of people tolive in densely populated cities results in a lack of space. A proposedsolution can be found in the usage of high-rise buildings. Nowadays there ismore awareness for the environment, thus this research tries to reduce theenvironmental impact of a...

During the early stages of the construction process of a building, the potential impact of design decisions is at its greatest. One of the reasons is the lack of computational tools at these stages. The main objective of this research project was the expansion of StructuralComponents by the development of a parametric real-time computational...
