In July 2021, an extraordinary precipitation led to severe flooding across Europe, particularly affecting South Limburg in the Netherlands, causing significant damage. In response, the Dutch government is seeking methods and new ways to mitigate the effects of future flash floods. Consequently, Waterschap Limburg (Limburg Water Board) initiated...

An earthquake-triggered fire domino scenario (E-FDS) is an example of a typical multi-hazard coupling event. The seismic damage can affect the fire resistance of engineering structures, leading to significant mutually amplified phenomena. In this work, a two-stage experimental program is designed to expound the earthquake-fire coupling...

Balanced armature receivers are electroacoustic transducers that are mostly integrated in hearing aids or pro audio products. The balanced armature receiver is a key component for hearing aids as it converts the processed electrical signal into sound waves. Failure of the balanced armature receiver are problematic for the end user. The receivers...

Although relevant information regarding the curtain walls structural damage state is available, hardly any data referring to the seismic loading effect on the overall façade performance is found in the literature. The present research attempts to assess the unitised curtain walls seismic performance by identifying the occurring damage mechanisms...

A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

Cement-based columns in combination with geosynthetic reinforcement is a well-established soft ground improvement technique to enhance embankment stability. This paper aims to present a finite-element (FE) study based on a case history of a geosynthetic-reinforced column-supported (GRCS) embankment over soft soil. In this study, the columns...

The aim of this research is to investigate the failure mechanisms of the filament-wound composite tubes under axial compressional loading by using an acoustic emission approach. First, the mechanical properties of ±45°C composite tubes were obtained experimentally. Then, failure due to the buckling phenomenon and crashworthiness...

Structural reliability analysis often considers failure mechanisms as correlated but non-interacting processes. Interacting failure mechanisms affect each others performance, and thereby the system reliability. We describe such interactions in the context of flood defenses, and analyze under which conditions such interactions have a large impact...

Most of the bridges in Europe countries are now approaching their design life. Therefore, at present crucial is the choice of the most suitable retrofitting solution taking the current design standards into account. From an economic point of view the costs related to the foundations adaptation are not negligible at all, even because design...

Structural flood protection systems such as levees are an important component in flood risk reduction strategies. Levees can fail through various failure mechanisms; this thesis focuses on the mechanism Backward Erosion Piping (BEP) which occurs when a sandy levee foundation is eroded by groundwater flow. To assess whether a levee's reliability...

The focus of this study is to investigate the mechanical properties, of ±35° and ±55° filament wound (FW) composite tubes under axial compression loading using the acoustic emission technique. For this purpose, material failure, crashworthiness characteristics, and the effect of each mechanism on the energy absorption capacity were studied...

The concept of an innovative bonded joining technology where welding is not required is presented as an alternative to traditional welded connection for steel circular hollow section (CHS). Wrapped composite joints have potential to greatly improve fatigue endurance when applied in multi-membered truss structures, e.g. offshore jackets for...

Nowadays, one of the main requirements from civil engineering structures is the level of reliability and safety that they must provide to the users. In structural analysis, the exponential application of numerical methods, as the nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA), is due to the increasing growth of computational power. These powerful...

The effect of temperature on the lap shear strength (LSS) and failure mechanisms of ultrasonically welded carbon fibre reinforced polyphenylene sulphide (CF/PPS) joints was investigated, correlating the weld performance to the crystallinity degree of PPS at the weldline. The single-lap shear tests were carried out at temperatures ranging from...

Geogrids are commonly used for reinforcement of soils in construction of railway and road embankments and bridge abutments. A relatively new application of geogrids is the anchorage of sheet pile walls, in which one or more layers of geogrid are attached to the sheet pile wall. This type of anchorage is particularly suitable for projects with...

The transportation industry is constantly developing innovative solutions in order to increase efficiency, sustainability and safety. Truck platooning is one of those emerging technologies with high potential. In one way or another, truck platooning will also have an impact on our current infrastructure and the way in which the motorways are...

A Safety Research project was carried out in an ammonia plant of OCI Nitrogen, located at the Chemelot site in Geleen, The Netherlands. This research focused on the development of a method to monitor accident processes in the chemical industry mainly caused by mechanical integrity of static equipment like vessels, tanks and heat exchangers. A...

It is no secret that (asset)managers are currently dealing with a difficult task to maintain and improve the quality of their assets. The main reason for this urgency is the change of use and the end of lifespan of these assets. This is especially the case regarding the inner-city quay walls. These quay walls are usually owned and managed by...

’De Watersnood van 1953’, the largest Dutch flood in recent history, caused the death of 1795 people in the Netherlands directly from the flood conditions, while in the UK, 315 were recorded. Most of them were among those whose residence collapsed due to high water depth, quick rise rate of the water or strong flow velocity. Based on historical...

Out-of-plane failure is one of the most important mechanisms for unreinforced ma-sonry (URM) structures to be prevented in the seismic areas. The one-way out-of-plane bend-ing failure mechanism has been studied by several authors. The two-way bending failure mechanism has received much less attention and only few formulations for specific cases...
