Ageing of bitumen has been long-recognized as one of the major reasons responsible for the gradual deterioration of asphalt pavements. Age-hardening of the binder leads to the embrittlement of the overall asphalt mixture, which entails its increased susceptibility to traffic and environmental induced damage. As a result, high maintenance efforts...

In Groningen, seismic activity has increased due to the extraction of gas in the area. A large-scale research campaign has been launched with the aim to assess and safeguard structures in the region. However, an accurate assessment of these buildings turned out to be a challenge, due to the nonlinear behaviour of the masonry and the dynamic...

The hyperloop system is a new transportation mode, which consists a magnetic levitating capsule-like hyperloop pod and a vacuum tube. Due to small air hindrance, the hyperloop pod is conceived to have a maximum speed of 333 m/s. If such a hyperloop system is to be built underground in soft soils, the hyperloop speed can easily reach the wave...

A series of accelerated corrosion tests were done by SGS INTRON (commenced by Combinatie Aanpak Maastunnel, constructor of the Maastunnel project) to investigate for a proper repair material for the deteriorated concrete floor in the Maastunnel at Rotterdam. Five types of fiber reinforced mixtures with different tensile behavior ranging from...

In the far south of the Netherlands, the erratic river Meuse flows through the landscape. It recently flooded twice in the 1990s, causing much economical damage. Emergency measures, such as a demountable flood wall, were taken to prevent future flooding. And while this solution was to the liking of the inhabitants, the update in the flood safety...

The use of synthetic fibres has been reported to enhance the performance of asphalt pavement materials in terms of permanent deformation, fatigue and thermal cracking. However, limited results about the benefits of synthetic fibres in the reinforced warm-mix asphaltic materials, and the exact mechanism of reinforcing the binding part in pavement...

Shear failure is one of the most critical failure modes of reinforced concrete members, especially for those without shear reinforcement. Despite the extensive research programs in the last decades, there is still no general agreement on a rational theory to assess their shear capacity. In the recent years, researchers have focused on developing...

W/C is a fundamental parameter for concrete mix design, it defines the properties in the fresh and hardened state as well as the durability of the material. Nevertheless, once the concrete has hardened, it is very difficult to estimate the W/C in the original mix design, so far only 2 methodologies has been accepted as a standards. Because of...

Rapid developments of both new (digital) fabrication techniques and innovative software facilitate the possibility to design, check and construct objects with great complexity and uniqueness without a large price tag. After new techniques slowly entered the field of architecture, the next step is to apply them in civil engineering to design load...

One of the most severe deteriorations in reinforced concrete structures is associated with reinforcement corrosion, where the corrosion distribution shows considerable spatial variability. In the existing investigations of spatial variability of corrosion on the reliability of reinforced concrete structures, symbolic expressions are used for the...

Vibration-based structural health monitoring of civil engineering structures is receiving increasing attention in recent years. This is due to the development of more robust system identification techniques as well as improvements with regard to the practicality of installing the necessary instrumentation. Health monitoring systems are more...

This research investigates how the equivalent frame method in combination with a sequentially linear analysis can be used to model the behaviour of a fa├žade of an unreinforced masonry structure, subjected to a lateral pushover load. The experimental data of the two-story building experiment at the University of Pavia is used.
Two different...

For the E39 highway in Norway a project is underway to replace the ferry crossing in the Sognefjord with a fixed crossing. Previous thesis projects have resulted in a design for a 4500 m long buoyancy bridge which consists of 22 concrete pontoons that carry a steel truss superstructure. To reduce lateral movements the pontoons are fixed to a...

In the Netherlands the design of a movable bridge and machinery part is based on the design standard NEN 6786:2001 (2001). When the bridge is in motion the calculations for the machinery part focus on the dynamic loads (torque) generating at the motor shaft. The calculation of these loads is carried out using tabulated formulas of the standard,...

This paper presents the development of a feasibility analysis tool for the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry called StructuralComponents 5.0. It is the fifth paper in a series of developments starting with Breider (2008), which discussed modelling and analysing 2D tall buildings with an emphasis on quick generation and...

In order to perform a reassessment of existing structures or design new structures in a more efficient and economical way non-linear finite element (NLFE) models are used to take into account all non-linear behavior in reinforced concrete structures. The Model Code 2010 (fib, 2012) suggest several safety formats to perform non-linear finite...

Digital Image Correlation analysis is performed to obtain measurements of the crack kinematics of four reinforced concrete beams without shear reinforcement. The results are used to implement the critical shear displacement theory. This new theory proposes that the opening of the critical inclined crack can be considered as a lower bound for the...

Traditional Ordinary Portland cement (OPC)-based concrete consumes large quantities of natural resources for its production, which is
highly energy intensive and has high CO2 emission. Therefore, development of the geopolymer concrete, based on use of industrial byproducts,
can provide an environmentally friendly and low-carbon...
