Abstract The purpose of this thesis is to assess potential alternative epoxy resins in injected bolted shear connections for a civil engineering application. Research has focused on the application of injection bolts with various resins in a double lap shear connection. In current practice only one resin is allowed to be used due to regulation...

In Rotterdam underneath the first load bearing sand layer is a layer of compressible soil, called the "Kedichem" layer. Under this layer of compresible soil is another load bearing sand layer located, at approximately -50m NAP, but most of the buildings in Rotterdam are foundated on the first loadbearing sand layer at approximately -23m NAP. Due...

This master thesis investigates the response of spirally welded steel tubes under 4-point bending deformation. Through the finite element simulations of a testing the buckling behavior of sprirally welded tubes can be more clearly understood. The numerical simulation and buckling behavior of spirally welded steel tubes is discussed in this...

The high levels of wind and wave loads on offshore structures make fatigue analysis a significant parameter that has to be taken into consideration throughout an offshore structure design. Steel tubular members are widely used in offshore (wind) industry due to their efficient structural behaviour. The welded connections between the different...

Initiation and propagation of fatigue cracks under heavy traffic loading is one of the most frequent causes of damage for road steel bridges. A particular case where fatigue phenomena have often been observed is the orthotropic steel deck (OSD). Due to its intricate layout with plated structural components in different planes and the inherent...

Widely deformable subsoil verifies a predominant concern in the design and construction of high-rise buildings. Extensive total and differential settlements are observed that are usually not in accordance to the predictions. In the Netherlands, the problem appears to be more intense in Rotterdam, the city that counts the largest number of...

The calculation of a residential Energy Label in the Netherlands and the payback time of an energy refurbishment are often affected by various inaccuracies between theoretical and actual achieved energy consumption. Even if improvements are attempted on either of them, significant problems occur such as the accuracy of input data for the...

The adoption of computation in the building industry has led to the development of a range of tools intended for design. Although commonly used for detailed analysis (FEA) and documentation (CAD/BIM), few tools address the needs of the early design stages for flexibility and quick, insightful feedback and documenting the justification of design...

In this thesis a particular structural system for high-rise structures is discussed: the prefabricated concrete framed tube and tube-in-tube structures. These system consist of a prefabricated concrete perforated elements in the perimeter of the structure that are the main lateral load resisting elements in the building. For tube-in-tube...

A number of load modes and comfort design guidelines, with the purpose of analyzing the comfort level of target structure, has been introduced in the last few years. The approaches to these issues have in many cases been very different in both how much in detail it goes when describing the pedestrian load and to what extent the load case has to...

The main objective of this research is to test the feasibility of prefabricated concrete as a construction material for (railway) underpasses. By means of a literature study the most important aspects for the use of prefabricated concrete are analyzed, as well as the execution aspects for an underpass crossing a railway. Based on the findings...

Additive manufacturing is a production technique that builds up successive layers of material to create a 3D object from a digital model. With additive manufacturing design freedom is offered, which enables new opportunities for structural engineers and designers. This new opportunity is applied to design and produce structural joints for...

Pressure locked gratings have many uses, both on land and at sea. This is mainly due to the high degree of flexibility in dimensions and load bearing capacity. Despite the many uses in our surroundings, the term pressure locked grating is unknown to many. This term refers to the way in which the most important connection in pressure locked...

In today’s world, terrorism is an unfortunate reality. Since 9-11, blast design has become a well-sought after design not only for federal and military buildings but also for other high risk buildings being a life safety issue. Facades are the barriers between the blast and the structure. De¬signing a façade for the safety of the occupants has...
