New railway bridges for high-speed trains are being built in a many countries around the world. In addition to the construction of new bridges, existing bridges are ageing. These two factors make the assessment of railway bridges essential. The bridges are designed considering certain predefined reliability criteria to account for the...

The Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) industry has been traditionally fragmented, with a lot of disciplines specialising in different aspects of a project and encapsulating different knowledge areas. This research project, entitled “Knowledge Model for the Parametric Design of Concrete Viaducts”, investigates the development of...

Bridges with different geometrical configurations have been searched with linear finite element analysis. The aim is to find the position and value of critical proof load. Four different parameters, namely span length, width, skewness and thickness ratio, their influence on proof load are found. In total, 166 sets of data are obtained by...

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 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...

Usually, concrete bridges contain a ‘thick’ bridge deck. For various reasons, bridges are constructed with railings. This thesis discusses the stability problem of concrete bridges, which are designed with integrated railings into the carrying construction. The most important advantage, using load bearing railings, is a thinner bridge deck. This...

New and current materials for bridge bearings are subjected to tests, according to the European Standards (NEN-EN 1337). With these tests the materials are not subjected to forces, displacements and rotations that are similar to those in practice. In order to give a critical opinion about the tests, it is necessary to obtain more knowledge about...

Introduction This graduation project has been initiated to research the technical feasibility of floating bridges. The project has been done in co-operation with the FDN engineering company and Delft technical university. A design is made of a continuous pontoon floating bridge, which connects a mainland to an island. Floating bridges can be...
