Covid-19 has proven how uncertain the future can be. However, traffic models fail to fully acknowledge this uncertainty. Therefore, decisions made based on these models are not very robust. In this research, Robust Decision Making (RDM) method is applied on a macro-level traffic model made for the municipality of Groningen. This method,...

The gas production in the Groningen gas field of the Netherlands has caused a significant amount of shallowhuman induced earthquakes. Among various building typologies, Groningen is home to many Dutch historical churches constructed by unreinforced masonry which has shown to be highly vulnerable to these earthquakes. From the perspective of...

Gas extractions are responsible for mostly all induced earthquakes in the Groningen area and this leads to damage of houses and buildings and issues regarding safety. Current strengthening measurements are mostly very visible. However, this can change by using the window frame as part of the structure, particularly interesting for Dutch houses...

Rock materials show dramatic dynamic weakening in large-displacement (m), high-velocity (∼1 m/s) friction experiments, providing a mechanism for the generation of large, natural earthquakes. However, whether such weakening occurs during induced M3-4 earthquakes (dm displacements) is unknown. We performed rotary-shear experiments on simulated...

In the Anthropocene, climate impacts are expected to fundamentally change the way we live in, and plan and design for, our cities and landscapes. Long-term change and uncertainty require a long view, while current planning approaches and policy making are mostly short-term oriented and are therefore not well suited to respond adequately. The...

The seismic assessment of unreinforced masonry structures in Groningen is still ongoing. The assessment is vital to determine whether a building must be strengthened or not. Different assessment approaches have been followed in recent years. First, the Non Linear Time-History analyses (NLTHA) were initially the only approach used for the seismic...

Each year, the province of Groningen experiences many induced earthquakes due gas extraction, which has been ongoing since 1963. The earthquakes cause damage to the buildings situated in the Groningen area, and they constitute a potential danger for the safety of the residents. These buildings are typically unreinforced masonry structures which...

Brouwer, Romy (author)
Since the 60’s the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) has been extracting gas from the province of Groningen in the Netherlands. This resulted into seismic activity. However, the buildings in Groningen are not designed to withstand any seismic loading. The assessment of the seismic behavior of the building stock of Groningen is required to...

Research and design for a more circular built environment, focused on the 'open building typology' and the technical aspects of 'design for disassembly'. Design focused on the city of Groningen.

Earthquakes in the past few decades has questioned the safety of people and infrastructure in Groningen region and its surroundings areas. The excessive gas extraction from the subsurface has led to human-induced earthquakes in this region. Liquefaction is a phenomenon that occurs as a result of earthquakes, reducing the soil shear strength to...

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...

Due to gas extraction, seismic activity has become a major problem in the province of Groningen. Existing buildings are not designed to withstand seismic loads and are likely to be structurally unsafe. Two storey terraced houses with concrete floors and large openings in the ground floor façade walls are onsidered vulnerable, since the in-plane...

In recent decades, gas production has caused numerous human-induced shallow earthquakes in the province of Groningen, The Netherlands. The buildings in this area were not designed for these unexpected earthquake loads and have shown to be vulnerable. However, current strengthening measures are considered to be time-consuming, expensive, and a...

Gas extraction has caused increased seismic activity in the area of Groningen, bringing about considerable damage to houses. The houses are generally old masonry houses with flexible timber diaphragms. It is of importance to assess the response of these houses in order to apply proper retrofit measures. There has been substantial research on...

This research describes the demand of a Displacement-based approach for the assessment of out-of plane behaviour of one-way vertically-spanning unreinforced masonry (URM) walls of terraced and detached houses in the Groningen Province. One of the most vulnerable components of a typical Dutch unreinforced masonry building subjected to earthquake...

We consider fluid-induced seismicity and present closed-form expressions for the elastic displacements, strains, and stresses resulting from injection into or production from a reservoir with displaced faults. We apply classic inclusion theory to two-dimensional finite-width and infinite-width reservoir models. First, we simplify the fault model...

The increase of the human-induced seismicity in the Groningen has increased the interest of all stakeholders to ensure the structural safety of all residents in the affected area. While there are already many conventional structural strengthening methods that are proposed and being implemented in the affected area, the study of a new innovative...

This thesis explores the usage of the particle filter as a data assimilation technique to estimate subsurface processes, such as reservoir volume change from space-geodetic PS-InSAR surface measurements. The specific research area is Groningen, where subsidence is induced by hydrocarbon and salt production.<br/>The satellite radar PS-InSAR...

This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

In the northern part of the Netherlands, the exploitation of gas fields has been inducing small earthquakes, causing damage to existing buildings. <br/>With the aim of preventing consequences to people and structures, the VIIA Groningen project deals with CC2 and CC3 buildings retrofit and provides reinforcement measures when necessary.<br/>As...
