About 70 prestressed concrete T-beam bridges, constructed in the Netherlands between 1953–1977, are still in use today with many located in the main highway network. This type of bridge consists of prefabricated and prestressed T-shaped beams, with an integrated deck slab, cross-beams and transverse prestressing. Even if these bridges are well...

Due to the accompanying severe consequences of explosions, the blast puts a great threat to public security. Nonlinear finite element analysis is a possible method for civil engineers to check the integrity of the structures under blast loading without underestimating the limit of the structures. However, different choices of element types...

For structures whose structural safety cannot be demonstrated using the applicable code regulations, a nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) can be used to investigate the structural behavior and maximum load capacity. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management uses a dedicated guideline for NLFEA in such an assessment....

Upscaling of two geopolymer concrete mixtures in an individual prestressed girder in self-compacting geopolymer concrete (SCGC) with a topping layer cast in-situ by a ready-mix geopolymer concrete provider. The objective is to study the different material properties of the mixtures, determine their impact in the structural performance and define...

The extraction of natural gas in the northern part of the Netherlands, from the region of Groningen, has been causing human-induced seismic activities for the past several decades. This is a problem since the existing building stock in this region, which consists of mainly unreinforced masonry buildings and historical structures, are not...

Nineteen 2D nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) solution strategies were benchmarked against a wide variety of 101 experiments on reinforced concrete beams failing in bending, flexural shear, or shear compression. The relatively high number of solution strategies was motivated by the conviction that choices for the constitutive models,...

Risk-based design of marine pressure hulls require computationally efficient and precise models predicting collapse pressures of ring stiffened cylindrical shells as a function of realistic geometrical imperfections. However, the empirical interframe collapse models commonly implemented in design codes do not explicitly depend on...

Strut-and-Tie modelling (STM) has been widely applied to design D-regions of reinforced concrete structures. For economic and environmental reasons there is a need for optimized Strut-and-Tie models. How to optimize Strut-and-Tie models considering multiple load combinations has not been investigated extensively in the literature. In order to...

Nowadays, one of the main requirements from civil engineering structures is the level of reliability and safety that they must provide to the users. In structural analysis, the exponential application of numerical methods, as the nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA), is due to the increasing growth of computational power. These powerful...

Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures are widely used in our society for more than a century. In order to design safe and economical RC structures, various methods have been proposed by engineers and researchers. Remarkably, it still is a challenging task for engineers to design D-regions of RC structures, regions with nonlinear strain...

The aim of this thesis is to propose a simple technique to estimate the maximum impact forces acting on bridge piers in the event of ship collisions. This technique is determined for Dutch commercial inland waterway ships (CEMT classes) and set up to be applied by bridge engineers to determine the required bridge pier strength. Many collision...

The strut-and-tie method is a reliable tool for designing the reinforcement in discontinuity regions in reinforced concrete structures. It provides safe designs, but it is on the other hand also acknowledged to provide conservative designs. As the strut-and-tie model is widely used in the design of structural elements as wall girders and pile...

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...

Strut-and-Tie modelling (STM) is a well-known approach to design D-regions in reinforced concrete structures. Because the STM method is based on lower-bound analysis, finding a suitable truss-analogy model is the most important aspect to guarantee good structural and economic performance of a resulting design. Continuum topology optimization ...

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...

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 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...

The concept and synthesis approach for planar Compliant Fluidic Control Structures (CFCSs), monolithic flexible continua with embedded functional pores, is presented in this manuscript. Such structures are envisioned to find application in biomedicine as tunable microfluidic devices for drug/nutrient delivery. The functional pores enlarge and...

Sequentially linear analysis (SLA), an event-by-event procedure for finite element (FE) simulation of quasi-brittle materials, is based on sequentially identifying a critical integration point in the FE model, to reduce its strength and stiffness, and the corresponding critical load multiplier (λ <sub>crit</sub>), to scale the linear analysis...

Finite element analysis is becoming a popular tool for engineers recently. Nonlinear finite element analysis is more advanced due to that it can deal with the nonlinearity of structures, which leads to more accurate approximation of structural behaviour. In Model Code 2010, nonlinear finite element analysis, which belongs to the higher level of...
