Mining activities at the Groningen gas field are causing earthquakes which result in building damage. This has started a discussion on what type of damage is caused by earthquakes. These discussions are typical in the forensic engineering field, especially in complex cases. The problem is the lack of regulations, in terms of standardizations and...

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...

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...

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...
