The induced earthquakes in the north of the Netherlands cause problems for the shallow foundations. At this moment there is no generally accepted way to deal with these earthquakes. The NPR advises a combination of two methods to calculate the seismic bearing capacity of shallow foundations. In order to find out if this procedure is legitimately...

The prediction of permanent deformation accretion in granular materials as a result of long-term cyclic loading is a complex challenge that receives great attention in engineering fields, including infrastructural design and design of offshore wind turbines. Many models have been proposed in the past which aim to predict this cyclic deformation...

The focus of this research is on samples taken from the return flow. With these samples and within the context of the Marsdiep project it is investigated if Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) can be used as a Site Investigation (SI) technique. In the Marsdiep project the feasibility of a pipeline constructed using HDD between the island Texel...

This study considers pipe uplift in liquefied sands in case full liquefaction occurs in the Groningen area. Due to the short vibration time, approximately 2 seconds, uplift is considered in fully liquefied sands without vibrations. The liquefaction time and resistance against uplift are determined by experiments. The resistance against uplift is...

In this thesis research is presented on the influence of multiple thin soft layers on the cone resistance and an attempt has been made to develop a correction factor from numerical and physical models. The presence of thin layers causes difficulties with determination of the liquefaction potential of sand deposits containing thin clay layers...

To improve the design of soil retaining walls in narrow trenches, a design optimization tool is introduced by Hosseinzadeh and Joosse (2015). This design optimisation tool is an intensification factor on the passive earth pressure coefficient Kp, that includes the effect of overlapping passive zones. The authors argue that the passive earth...

Unsaturated groundwater dynamics play a major role in the nalysis of soil-atmosphere interaction, stability of geotechnical structures, and the impact of climate change aspects on these subjects. The nonlinear behaviour of water retention in the soil has a large impact on the governing equation known as Richards’ equation, and steep boundary...

The impact of overburden pressure on shrinkage behavior of fine-grained soil is investigated by means of a shrinkage curve based on experimental data. It was found that to speak of shrinkage means that one must define the initial soil volume and occurring changes. Three definitions of soil volume were determined, based on settlement, horizontal ...

The investigation performed for this MSc graduation thesis has focused on the creation of a numerical model for the induced failure of the trial embankment in location B within the Leendert de Boerspolder. What has been modeled in this MSc graduation thesis project is a 2D cross section of the mentioned embankment. Later on its safety has been...

This thesis is focusing on the building damage parameters monitoring techniques and the validation of the current damage prediction methodology on building response next to deep excavations. Settlement risk assessments were done in Delft tunnel project to define and control the risk of damaging the adjacent buildings to the tunnel by following...

In order to simulate microbially influenced mineral precipitation process, a 1D reactive transport model is developed. The developed reactive-transport model consists three components: MATLAB (main stream), ORCHESTRA (equilibrium reaction processor) and EXCEL (user interface). The established model as a generic tool enables the simulation of one...

This thesis discusses the use of 3D finite element method (FEM) in deep excavations, especially the simulation of sequential excavation method in 3D FEM model. It is an independent research project based on the Spaarndammertunnel project in Amsterdam. This thesis only focused on the excavation part of the tunnel project. Soil parameters used in...

In this study a deep tunnel excavation in the Boom Clay (BC) formation, in the context of constructing a repository for the deep geological disposal of radioactive waste in the Netherlands, is investigated by means of numerical modelling. First the selection of a constitutive soil model, that captures adequately the known aspects of the...

Significant financial investments are made in the offshore wind energy, in a race to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The trend is to install larger capacity wind turbines in deeper waters, further from shore. DTI (2001) states that 30% of this investment is represented by the foundation costs. Senders (2008) and Byrne & Houlsby (2003) found...

A research was undertaken to find the suitability of Turkish calcium bentonite from the mines of a Company. Four samples of bentonite mines in the {\"U}nye region are researched, the M1, M2, M3 and M4 mine. The suitability of drilling fluid, foundry sand, soil improvement and bleaching earth applications is found through research on the...

To develop a project in foreign countries, it is possible to use different standards or codes, which if are properly followed, give an acceptable level of reliability. However the different usage can generate different section dimensions and also reliability of the structure can differ. The thesis has the aim to compare the design of a...

The static bearing capacity of most driven piles in The Netherlands is derived using a preinstallation method based on soil parameters. As a result of recent research the reliability of this method decreases; As a result different calculations might become attractive. A method widely used abroad is a Dynamic Load Test(DLT) to calculate the...

This research deals with the evaluation of earthquake induced liquefaction susceptibility of carbonate sands, used as hydraulic fill. Existing evaluation methods are based on in-situ penetration tests (CPT, SPT etc.) and on seismic case histories at sites where silica sands are predominant. These methods cannot be implemented on carbonate sands,...
