The historic canal walls of Amsterdam, stretching 200 km in total, are constructed as a masonry wall on a timber deck supported by vertical timber piles. Understanding the resistance against lateral failure of these quays has been challenging due to uncertainties in their working principles, geometry, soil and structural properties. This...

Large-diameter monopiles serve as foundations for offshore wind turbines (OWT), and the diameters are now up to 10 meters. These monopiles exhibit lower embedded length-to-diameter (L/D) ratios compared to the conventional monopile that is widely employed in offshore oil and gas platforms. They undergo rotation when subjected to lateral loading...

To support offshore wind turbines (OWT), monopiles are currently the most frequently used foundation method. These monopiles are open-ended steel tubes with a diameter of 5 - 12 m, which are most often installed in the seabed by means of hydraulic impact hammering usually mounted...

Piles have been widely used as foundations to resist lateral loads. For the design of a laterally loaded pile, one of the most important inputs is the ultimate soil resistance (p<sub>ult</sub> = K<sub>ult</sub>Dσv<sup>′,whereK</sup>ult is the ultimate lateral soil resistance coefficient, D is the pile diameter, and σv<sup>′</sup> is the...

This paper presents a synthesis of recent and new research conducted by the authors on laterally loaded monopiles in drained sand. The research involved reduced-scale field tests, centrifuge model tests, finite element (FE) simulations and comparisons of design approaches with published experimental data. The influence of the monopile base on...

The historic canal wall structures in many Northern European cities have been built as masonry walls on a timber deck founded on timber piles. For analysis of the resistance of those structures and assessment of their remaining service life, suitable and accurate calculation models are needed. Thereto an analytical method was developed for...

Monopiles are the most popular foundation for offshore wind turbines. These foundations typically have a low length to diameter ratio and undergo a rigid body rotation when subjected to lateral load. This paper presents results from an extensive numerical investigation involving 3D finite element analyses to demonstrate that the lateral...

Marine structures are frequently equipped with rubber fender systems, which absorb the berthing en­ergy in order to protect both the marine structure and the berthing vessel. These fender systems absorb the kinetic berthing energy by elastic deflection and the associated reaction fender force introduces a berthing impact load acting on the...

Although wind energy capacity has increased significantly in the last few decades, the installed capacity of offshore wind turbine still lags far behind that of onshore wind turbines due to the installation and foundation cost. The aim of this research project has been to clarify the influence of combined vertical and lateral loads, lateral...

Amsterdam and many other cities consist of a network of old quay walls, which sometimes have been constructed over a century ago. A large uncertainty exists concerning the current safety of these quay walls and their remaining service lifetime. In the current framework for the assessment of old urban quay walls, the influence of timber creep in...

In the last decade, maintenance and adaptive reuse, of the existing building stock, have gained ground in the construction sector. For the adaptive reuse of a building, it is required to analyze, meticulously, the existing structure. Unreinforced masonry structures are indicative of the Dutch built environment. For the assessment of their...

Monopiles are the most commonly used foundations for offshore wind turbines (OWTs). To date these are mostly impact driven into the seabed using high-capacity hammers. The noise and vibrations caused by driving create environmental concerns and the increasing size of these foundations has resulted in alternative installation methods being...

Monopiles are commonly used as foundations for offshore wind turbine generators (WTGs). Due to the rapid growth of the offshore wind energy sector, there is increasing demand for WTGs of larger capacities which evidently leads to demand for monopiles with larger diameter. An industry standard approach for assessing pile lateral response is the p...

Over the past 5 years, a substantial research effort aimed at optimising the design of offshore wind turbines has led to significant reductions in the projected cost of developing offshore wind. Optimising the geotechnical design of these structures, through modern analysis techniques such as 3D Finite Element Modelling (FEM), has played a...

The common practice in centrifuge modelling of dynamic processes is to use high-viscosity pore fluids to unify the time scaling factors for the generation and dissipation of pore pressures. This paper focuses on the effects of the density and viscosity of the pore fluid on the behaviour of an offshore rigid pile subjected to cyclic and monotonic...

A hot topic in the Netherlands is the safety reassessment of dikes. Currently several (river)dikes are being reinforced to withstand a given normative high water level. The environment of those dikes is often characterised by small floodplains and urban areas right next to the dike, wherefore standard geo-technical measures cannot be applied....

In the Bloemendalerpolder two test embankments were constructed in 2010 to study the long term behaviour of embankments on very soft soils with respect to settlement and lateral pile loading resulting from horizontal soil deformations. A detailed description of the test embankments, performed soil investigation, laboratory tests and...

Spatial autocorrelation arises in geological material by virtue of its formation by natural processes acting over long geologic time (millions of years). This endows geomaterial with some unique statistical features (e.g. spatial variability) not commonly found in structural material manufactured under strict quality control. For example, by the...

The subject of this master's thesis stems from a lack of design rules in the current regulations for dolphins located in sloping ground. Dolphins are very common objects in Dutch waterways, of which a large part are located in sloping ground. The lack of design rules causes difficulties between clients and contractors, possible unfavourable...
