Portillo Arreguin, Diana (author)
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...

The objective of this thesis is to enhance understanding of the behaviour of a flexible dolphin and its interaction with the surrounding soil in order to determine the optimal embedded depth. A comprehensive field test is conducted to gain deeper insights into the behaviour of the flexible dolphin and the soil surrounding the pile. The test...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

Monopiles with large diameter (larger than 6 m) and low aspect ratio (less than 6) are increasingly used in offshore wind farms. These foundations demonstrate a rigid response under lateral loading. The validity of the existing design methods, that are based on small diameter flexible piles, has been questioned by both the industry and...

Vibratory installation of piles and casings can be extremely economical, therefore the contractors prefer pile driving. When compared to impact pile driving, vibratory pile driving generates less noise but this installation method is still fraught with uncertainties (Rausche 2003). Environmental effects (such as ground vibrations) have negative...

The suction pile foundation is a large steel cylinder with an open end and sealed top. This foundation type is widely used in the oil&gas industry and wind energy. Experimental investigation and numerical investigation are the main two methods to understand the performance of the suction bucket foundation. The experimental studies are...

Verloop, Rosanne (author)
During the boring of a tunnel in soft soils with a slurry TBM, support pressure is used to achieve equilibrium at the face of the TBM. When this equilibrium is not reached, when the face support pressure is too low or too high, settlements will occur. In this research settlement and pore water pressure measurements are used to monitor the...

van de Stroet, Peter (author)
The low lying areas in the Netherlands often consist of soft and low permeable soils like clay and peat on top of a sand layer. Due to high water pressures at the interface between the permeable sand layer and the low permeable top layers, the effective stresses decrease, which can cause lifting of the low permeable top layers. As a consequence...

Frissen, Mitch (author)
Currently, the settlements of high-rise buildings are calculated based on two methods. The single pile settlements (s1), are generated due to mobilised shaft friction and pile tip resistance. These settlements are determined with analytical methods (i.e. NEN 9997-1, 2017). Settlements related to pile group behaviour in soil layers below pile tip...

In this research project, an assessment of an abatement measure for mitigating railway induced vibrations is carried out. Ground-borne vibrations, which are primarily generated due to wheel-rail interaction, may also result in ground-borne noise in the buildings located in vicinity of railway tracks. An example of adverse environmental impact...

The stability of any structure is an important aspect in civil engineering. The subject of this thesis is the stability of the quay structure at the Amazonehaven, port of Rotterdam. The reason for writing this report is to investigate the safety and stability of the quay structure, which was built in 1990, throughout its service lifetime while...

Dijkstra, S.D. (author)
The graduation thesis focuses on providing insight in the consequences of subsiding ground on soil anchors. With the years, the bars of an anchored sheet pile walls for example, can be unfavourably loaded due to subsiding soil. As a result of these lateral loads, the bar will deform and elongate, causing the stresses to increase. The...

Verhoef, R.M. (author)
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...

Lankreijer, T.M.A. (author)
This thesis focuses on the stability of slender micro piles with a diameter of 100-400mm in soft soils when used in compressive situations. In the western part of the Netherlands and many other deltaic areas weak clay and peat deposits overlay stiffer sand layers. In these geological conditions flexural buckling may cause a considerable design...

In the last few years, the CUR committee 159B has been working on the new Dutch Design Guideline for the design of piled embankments. To validate the guideline several field tests have been performed. From the field measurements is concluded that the design method is very conservative. Improving the design guideline will reduce the construction...

In het algemeen is een door grond horizontaal belaste paal een 3-D situatie, die in 1 fase direct met een 3-D EEM-model (zoals PLAXIS 3D Foundation) kan worden gemodelleerd. Deze modellen zijn echter gecompliceerd en pas de laatste jaren eenvoudiger toepasbaar in de adviespraktijk. Een directe berekening is ook mogelijk met PLAXIS 2D. Het...
