As collisions between aircraft and birds happen many thousands of times every year, all aspects of such impact events need to be taken into account in the process of designing an aircraft. One aspect that poses a risk is caused by the vibrations induced during bird impact. These vibrations are propagated through the aircraft structure by stress...

The city of Amsterdam has a large number of old quay walls with rotten foundation piles. These foundation piles need to be identified and measures need to be taken. The urban quay walls are supported by two types of foundation: pinewood piles, which are easily affected by bacterial decay and spruce piles. To understand the mechanical behaviour...

For calculation of the resistance of a composite slab against the transverse shear force, the Eurocode 4 (composite structures) simply refers to the calculation procedures of the Eurocode 2 (concrete structures). It is assumed that the composite slab consists out of a consecutive range of concrete ribs in its width direction, which are solely...

Recent decades, an ongoing trend has emerged in the upscaling of wind turbines in order to compete with traditional energy resources. For conventional wind turbines, aside from improving safety, the driving factors for new designs have always been increased efficiency and performance. This has led to novel wind turbine designs comprising thin...

Reliable and efficient modelling of magnetic hysteresis in inhomogeneous and aniso-tropic media is an important step in developing a state-of-the-art closed-loop degaussing system for naval ships and submarines, to be developed by TNO and to be used by the Royal Netherlands Navy in an updated generation of naval vessels and submarines. Different...

This work aims at predicting the elasto-plastic and fracture behavior of ABS polymers obtained by Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). The strategy adopted is to characterize the microstructure of Representative Volume Elements (RVEs) of the material, as well as the mechanical properties of the polymeric filament used in the FFF process and then...

This master thesis presents the computation of free-surface flow phenomena with emphasis on ship hydromechanics. We perform a simulation of the heave and the pitch motion of the DTMB 5415M ship moving in head sea. To this purpose we employ an existing Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian residual-based variational multiscale method (ALE-RBVMS) to...

The strut-and-tie method (STM) has been acknowledged as one of the most reliable tools for designing discontinuity regions in structural concrete. It is capable of producing safe designs consistently since it was developed as an extension of the lower-bound theorem of plasticity theory. However, to aptly address a physical problem of a concrete...

In this research project, an attempt is made to fuse the fields of structural mechanics and machine learning. The goal is to find out if models can be created that are capable of predicting the outcomes of (nonlinear) finite element analyses. These models are created by means of Artificial Neural Networks, which is a powerful method in the...

In the past decades, gas productions in the province of Groningen in The Netherlands have caused a significant amount of shallow human-induced earthquakes. Its building stock has shown to be highly vulnerable to these unexpected events. Among various building typologies, damage has been reported for approximately 12.9% of the churches in...

In finite element analysis, nonlinear time-history analysis is a realistic and accurate analysis type for dynamic or seismic analysis due to its solutions contain wealthy data and complete response time-history. The most commonly used method, probably the only practical procedure, in nonlinear time-history analysis is the direct time integration...

Guidelines dating back 50 years, NASA SP-8007, are employed today in the design of thin-walled launch vehicle structures. Due to advances in materials, structural designs, and manufacturing techniques since the publication of SP-8007, the development of new knockdown factors for contemporary launch vehicle structures is an ongoing subject of...

Airborne Composites Automation recently installed an automation product line that creates flat thermoplastic laminates intended for consumer electronics industry. However, due to the composite nature of the material and the process parameters, the final product is deformed, as a result of internal residual stresses. The purpose of this thesis is...

Compressive membrane action is a phenomenon commonly found in reinforced concrete structures after significant cracking and deformation have taken place. In this thesis report, the potential benefit of CMA in immersed tubes subjected to fires is quantified through a finite element study. Furthermore, sensitivity studies are conducted in order to...

The advancements in driver assistance systems in cars and the development of autonomous vehicles require more states of the car to be known than the conventional sensors can accurately determine. Load sensing bearings (LSBs) are under development that measure the wheel forces under dynamic load. Through sensor fusion, the addition of this sensor...

The aim of this thesis project is to investigate the model uncertainty of non-linear finite element analysis of reinforced concrete structures at ultimate limit state by focusing on concrete cracking model, concrete-reinforcement interaction model and mesh size. Following this, eight finite element modelling strategies are developed and 67...

Shear tension failure in thin-webbed prestressed concrete elements is yet to be predicted in an accurate manner. The analytical method uses assumptions to simplify the theory. This makes it less accurate. The calculated resistance to web-shear cracking is based on the principle tensile stress reaching the tensile strength of concrete. Failing in...

The structural reliability of the wooden tower of the Grote of St. BavoChurch in Haarlem has been assessed with the regular methods. In addition to the regular methods, some modern technologies have been used in the structural analysis. The mechanical properties of the timber have been determined with longitudinal vibration tests and visual...

Since the exploitation of wind as a renewable energy resource, jack-up vessels equipped with more than three independent legs are increasingly employed to transport and install the components of offshore wind turbines. By lowering the movable legs the vessel is able to elevate the hull from sea water level. In elevated position the vessel...
