Many vacant buildings that are reused are constructed in concrete. With concrete, one thought to have found a solution for the fire resistance of buildings. Today it appears that the fire resistance of concrete is not always a matter of course. Therefore, it is important to properly asses the fire resistance of existing concrete buildings. With...

Numerous structures constructed in 60’s and 70’s are now reaching their design service life and require reassessment to assure safety of users, reliability and economical exploitation. As a consequence, an adequate structural assessment of existing bridges has recently become a major subject of scientific work commissioned by the authorities in...

Many bridges in The Netherlands are built around 1960-1970 and currently reach their designed service life of 50 years. The traffic loads are increasing and new insights in the behaviour of constructions are obtained. Therefore there are doubts about safety of these bridges and viaducts and these must be assessed. As the current safety codes...

Advanced Cementitious Materials (ACM’s) are products with materials found in conventional concrete (cement, silica fume, sand, superplasticizer, and water) plus distinctive materials like fibers (steel, carbon) and quartz. The superiority of ACM’s in terms of strength, ductility, and durability marks it as high potential replacement of...

The intent of US design codes is to design buildings with uniform reliability regardless of the building type, location, or design approach. However, it is unlikely that risk-consistency is achieved for different design approaches, as differences and discrepancies between these design methodologies exist. This study focused on the structural...

Building and maintenance of the railway track and its sub- and superstructures in the Netherlands are commissioned by ProRail. In addition to the Eurocode ProRail prescribes a wide range of regulations and guidelines related to railway track. Amongst these are a few specifically for the design of civil structures. With respect to prestressed...

Incremental bridge launching is one of the many ways in which a bridge can be constructed. In The Netherlands this method is not often used. This may be explained by the fact, that there are not many suitable locations for application of this method. Incremental bridge launching is profitable for long bridges and can only be used for straight...

The design of reinforcement in concrete structures is a complex procedure, often resulting in inefficient designs. One possible solution to improve the design process and create more efficient designs is structural optimisation. This Master’s Thesis focusses on the development of a technique for optimisation of reinforcement in 3D concrete...

A study has been performed in the application of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the new Leiden Bridge. It has been compared with normal strength and high performance concrete. The goal was to investigate if UHPC could be used as a serious alternative next to other types of concrete for a design in bridges. The research showed that...

By making use of HSC the box girders of Spanbeton are designed more slender. Use was made of additional prestressing and additional stirrups. Steel fibers were used to increase the ductility of the HSC. Besides the ductility, the steel fibers were used to increase the shear capacity of the concrete. Due to this increase, less stirrups were needed.

Dutch national highway bridges have to cope with increasing traffic loads, causing steel bridges built in the 1970’s to suffer from fatigue problems. As a consequence there were assessments needed throughout the last decade to ensure safety. The resistance (strength) is relatively well understood compared to the loads that a bridge is subjected...

Immersed tunnels have become an integral part of the modern day society. Their serviceability and maintenance are of prime importance. In recent years, monitoring of immersed tunnels for deformations showed the necessity for the analysis of certain tunnels due to an unexpected and local increase of settlements and rotations. With the Kiltunnel...

The application of prefabricated and usually prestressed concrete elements has increased since mid-20th century. These elements are at the point of reaching the end of their life span, are subjected to damages or a change in functionality. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate their structural safety. In many cases, existing structures do not...

This study deals with the finite element analysis to determine the behavior of reinforced concrete beams and high walls. It is assumed that the behavior of these members can be described by a plane stress field. This thesis consists of two major parts. The first part is about reinforcing of slender beams with the Linear Elastic Finite Element...

The excavated building pit is a frequently used building technique during the construction of structures below ground level. A temporary structure of sheet piles and underwater concrete is designed to retain soil and water. Ribbed tension piles are driven to compensate the hydrostatic pressure after de-watering of the construction pit. Generally...

Within this document the differences arising from the transition of the NEN (Dutch code) to the Eurocode are studied with respect to shear failure and fatigue. These differences are investigated on a global level, where in addition the fib Model Code is taken into account. In the next part the actual differences are determined within a case...

The research showed that there is only a poor relation between second order bending moment magnification via Euler buckling and the actual geometrically nonlinear behaviour of arches. The better approach for the second order effect is to think of additional bending moments caused by imperfections and by the imaginary second order loading. The...

Structural slabs on underwater concrete are widely applied in the construction of tunnels, parking garages, rail- and road construction. Over the years many problems have been reported with aquiferous crack formation in structural slabs on underwater concrete. Aquiferous trough crack formation threatens the durability of structural slabs on...
