This thesis examines the load distribution on 60 m long piles under gradual static loading, considering the POST Rotterdam high-rise building as the study project. The research employs fibre optic (FO) instrumentation on site to monitor strain changes in the piles over time and assess load transfer mechanisms. This data is integrated into a...

This thesis discusses the characterization of the undrained shear strength, S_u from the net cone resistance, q_net of clay in Dutch sites using Hierarchical Bayesian Modelling (HBM). The performance of the HBM is compared with the current practice methods of the site characterization which propose either the use of only site–specific...

The inner-city of Amsterdam contains a large network of vulnerable, historic quay walls. Most of these quay walls consist out of masonry gravity walls placed on wooden relieving floors and wooden foundation piles. Due to the changing surface loading conditions behind the wall and the degradation of the masonry and wooden structures over the last...

The case study of the outer lock head of the New Terneuzen Lock is considered to investigate the behavior of the Boom Clay and to develop an automated method for improving the deformation predictions in a deep excavation format. The initiative to perform this study was the uncertainty in modeling the Boom Clay behavior during the design and the...

The 1st Heinenoordtunnel is an immersed tube which has been open for service in the Netherlands since 1969. Over the past 50 years, a large and increasing settlement has been measured along the tunnel alignment. The greatest value of settlement (65 mm) occurs in tunnel element 1 from 1978 to 2018. The maximum differential settlement has reached...

Using an expensive-to-evaluate numerical model, such as a finite element method (FEM) model, is deemed unavoidable in solving modern geotechnical engineering problems. At the same time, the application of reliability analysis in dealing with uncertainties (e.g. soil properties) is increasing rapidly. This could pose a time-wise problem for an...

In the planning stage of new infrastructure or when designing renovation of existing infrastructure, information about existing slope movements or settlements is essential to make informed design decisions. Interferometric<br/>Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) techniques can be of value to identify these risks in an early stage of a project....

The application of reliability analysis in geotechnical engineering is relatively new compared to the other sections of civil engineering such as structural engineering and hydraulic engineering. However, due to its increases use in recent years, reliability analysis is planned to be included extensively in the upcoming Eurocode 7 (EN 1997)....

Offshore wind power structures are subjected to cyclic loading. Several loads like wind and wave loading are acting on the structure and therefore its foundation. It is important to involve the impact of this cyclic loading into the design of the structure. A cyclic load influences the strength and deformation characteristics of the soil. Due to...

Finite Element Analysis is an application used in many engineering fields, including geotechnical engineering. With increasing complexities of structures and material behavior, classical approach for non-linear finite element analysis has become computationally expensive (Gulikers, 2018). In order to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the...

Six cyclic settlement models for sand are evaluated to analyse the settlement of automatic stacking crane (ASC) rail tracks at the Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) container terminal. During Phase 1 of the RWG container terminal settlement of the rail tracks occurred at multiple locations after the ASCs became operational....

As part of the effort to make the Dutch waterways CO2-neutral, a consortium consisting of, among others, CRUX Engineering BV and Delft University of Technology, initiated a case study in which the thermal and mechanical performance of an energy sheet pile wall is studied. This technology allows for the extraction of energy from the water and...

In this paper, a meshfree method called adaptive CTM–RPIM is developed to model geotechnical problems with large deformation. The developed adaptive CTM–RPIM is a combination of the Cartesian transformation method (CTM), the radial point interpolation method (RPIM) and the alpha shape method. To reduce the requirement for meshes, the CTM is...

The design and construction of quay walls are processes that exist for many centuries and have become more complex and challenging in current engineering practice. For the design of quay walls a number of guidelines and design codes have been developed over the years. These give the requirements that a quay wall structure should meet, but do...

The widely used cone penetration test (CPT) allows in-situ measurements of soil behaviour during continuous penetration. The traditional sensors incorporated in a cone penetrometer are for measuring cone resistance, sleeve friction, pore pressure, and inclination. Many supplementary sensors have been studied and tried in research settings and in...

This paper describes current work on the implementation of non-trivial boundary conditions (BCs) for improving the general applicability of the Material Point Method (MPM) to geotechnical boundary values problems. It summarises novel boundary treatments (non-trivial BCs) in MPM for (i) flow conditions, as well as (ii) the application of a...

The effectiveness of foam for mobility control in the presence of oil is key to foam enhanced oil recovery (EOR). A fundamental property of foam EOR is the existence of two steady-state flow regimes: the high-quality regime and the low-quality regime. Experimental studies have sought to understand the effect of oil on foam through its effect on...

The stability of a dike is influenced strongly by its water content, by way of changes in effective stress and weight. While flow through porous media is relatively well understood, water flux in and out of a dike through a vegetated surface is not as well understood. This paper presents a numerical study of the soil-vegetation-atmosphere...
