This research addresses the complex challenge of mitigating uplift within a water-retaining system, specifically focusing on the Valmeer Energy Storage Lake (ESL), an integral part of the DELTA21 project. The need for rapid emptying of the ESL during storm surges, often within a tight 12-hour window, has raised concerns about potential seabed...

Variable density groundwater models are essential for managing coastal groundwater resources. However, their practical applicability can be questioned due to limited validation opportunities on long timescales associated with the development of fresh-saline distributions. This study addresses this challenge by applying upscaled metamodeling...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

Projections show that urban areas are growing at an increasing rate and produce 60% of the global greenhouse gas emissions (United Nations, n.d.). In Europe, the thermal energy sector consumes about half of the energy resources, of which 85% is produced by fossil fuel-based energy systems (Drijver, Bakema, & Oerlemans, 2019). As a result of...

The clay adhesion phenomenon has been problematic in multiple engineering projects involving soft cohesive soils. In this dissertation, the adhesive characteristics of offshore high plasticity clay will be analyzed in support to deep sea mining applications. Adhesion of clays are particularly relevant in 2:1 swelling clays, where the magnitude...

Land subsidence is a complicated phenomenon, relevant in the Holocene coastal-plain of the Netherlands, that can be triggered by many different mechanisms and components. To cope with the effects of land subsidence, detailed information on which mechanisms are causing subsidence and its variation over time and space are needed. Subsidence...

Currently, the settlements of high-rise buildings are calculated based on two methods. The single pile settlements (s1), are generated due to mobilised shaft friction and pile tip resistance. These settlements are determined with analytical methods (i.e. NEN 9997-1, 2017). Settlements related to pile group behaviour in soil layers below pile tip...

In a bored railway tunnel project in the Middle-East, difficulties in terms of ovalization, water leakages and settlement of several lining rings located in a fault zone were observed at the end of the construction stage. The present research attempted to find the cause for this lining behaviour. The determination of critical loading conditions,...

This thesis tried to quantify the strength reduction of the soft soil layers of the experiment through a back analysis of the failure of the dyke without sheet pile wall. Residual strength hypothesis were formulated based on a literature study and the current design norm of dyke design on soft soil layers in the Netherlands. A Limit Equilibrium...

Seismic design codes are currently moving from a force-based design approach to a performance-based design approach. For example, in a performance-based design approach it could be specified how many lanes must be available during the lifetime of a bridge...

Throughout the years the requirements of sheet pile walls have changed. Therefore reassessment of these structure's reliability is of importance. In this thesis, Bayesian updating is used for the reliability updating task. Updating processes require measurements of the structure under known conditions. Although for practical and economical...

The focus of this research was the implementation of a permanent steel fibre reinforced underwater concrete floor (SFRUCF) as a permanent structural floor. A model was created that can describe the soil structure interaction of an SFRUCF including the highly non-linear behaviour of SFRC. The soil structure interaction of the UCF was modelled in...

In the Netherlands, when a bored tunnel has to be constructed, a launch and a reception shaft have to be excavated to guarantee sufficient cover. This is necessary to ensure face stability, prevent uplift and risk of blow out. Moreover, especially in the western part of the Netherlands, the first 10 to 20 meters of soil consists of the Holocene...

Nowadays suction caissons are extensively used for anchoring large offshore floating facilities. Installation of suction caissons in coarse grained soils is achieved by induced seepage flow in the soil. This reduces the soil resistance at the caisson tip, which contributes to the installation process. Installation in fine grained materials with...

In 2010 design guidelines for piles that are subjected to lateral loads by soils were published in CUR-report 228. The design guidelines are developed by a committee who did several case studies. A few recommendations were made from these case studies. To complement the case studies a long term field test on time dependent soil behavior and a...

A thesis presented on the comparison between different geotechnical models for single piles, which are loaded laterally at the top, on the basis of field measurements. The considered models are Blum, Brinch Hansen, Broms, the Characteristic Load Method, the Nondimensional Method, the Single Pile Module of MSheet, p-y Analysis by MPile and Finite...
