First of all, an overview was created of different problems that can occur by the construction of cast-in-situ concrete piles, discussing the mechanisms that cause these problems. From the overview it was concluded that little information is present about the exact cause of excessive bleeding. Two possible causes were identified, excess pore...

In this report, an experimental investigation of the influence of currents on submarine slope stability is presented for the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier case. Slope instabilities, including liquefaction failures, have been observed in the scour hole slopes near this barrier. The currents above the sloping bed are expected to initiate the...

As a result of population growth and economical prosperity, energy consumption has been on the rise for decades. Present-day projections predict the continuation of this trend with the rapid industrialization of former second world countries. Together with the rise of energy demand, incentives fo the scientific community to quantify the...

Tunnel construction projects in the western part of the Netherlands are typically built in soft, heterogeneous ground conditions with low stiffness and high groundwater tables. The tunnelling technique used is the ‘slurry shield’ method, which uses a tunnel-boring machine (TBM). The TBM consists of a steel cylinder with a cutting wheel at the...

Loose, sandy slopes situated or deposited under water may be susceptible to liquefaction-induced failure. In contrast to 'regular' localised slope failures, flow slides are diffuse, large-scale and potentially disastrous. Earthquake-induced ground vibrations currently dominate the liquefaction engineering scene. In reality, however, many...

Scour hole formation around offshore monopile foundations is a threat for the structure’s stability. Large uncertainty leads to conservatism in design codes and hence to high construction costs. Under the same hydrodynamic loading as for scour hole formation the soil can liquefy due to structural vibrations or waves. The aim of this study is to...
