The aim of this research is to investigate which design method results in the best approximation of the deformations of a quay wall consisting of an anchored combined wall with relieving platform, looking at the elastoplastic method and the finite element method. The elastoplastic method is performed with the program D-Sheet Piling and the...

The inner-city of Amsterdam contains a large network of vulnerable, historic quay walls. Most of these quay walls consist out of masonry gravity walls placed on wooden relieving floors and wooden foundation piles. Due to the changing surface loading conditions behind the wall and the degradation of the masonry and wooden structures over the last...

Quay walls are often designed with Finite Element models (FE models) to take into account the complex soil-structure interaction and highly non-linear soil behavior. However, the effect of temperature variations is uncertain if it is taken into account in the design of the quay walls at the Port of Rotterdam.<br/><br/>Nowadays, new quay walls...

The 1st Heinenoordtunnel is an immersed tube which has been open for service in the Netherlands since 1969. Over the past 50 years, a large and increasing settlement has been measured along the tunnel alignment. The greatest value of settlement (65 mm) occurs in tunnel element 1 from 1978 to 2018. The maximum differential settlement has reached...

Over the past decades an increase in underground construction is observed. Deep excavations are among the structures used for underground construction. The construction of such structures often affects nearby existing structures and causes possibly even damages.<br/>The prediction of these damages is usually done by following these steps:<br/>1....

Reliability analysis is a rational method for dealing with uncertainties. It is increasingly used for the design and assessment of (civil) structures. Reliability analysis, possibly in combination with performance data, allows for instance to update (extend) the lifetime of existing quay wall structures. This gives economic advantages when...

With changing climatic conditions, droughts are expected to increase in duration and intensity. Under drying conditions, desiccation cracks can form in clay soil, which is often used as dyke cover and in some cases also for the core of the dyke. These desiccation cracks have a potential impact on the stability of dykes. The main objective of...

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...

The stability of breakwaters in seismically active areas is not always guaranteed. A new approach to model a breakwater subjected to an earthquake is with PM4Sand. The goal of this research is to find if breakwaters subjected to earthquakes can be correctly modelled with PM4Sand.<br/>To investigate PM4Sand a breakwater subjected to an earthquake...

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...

The design and construction of quay walls are processes that exist for many centuries and have become more complex and challenging in current engineering practice. For the design of quay walls a number of guidelines and design codes have been developed over the years. These give the requirements that a quay wall structure should meet, but do...

Displacement control is of utmost importance in deep excavation design and is usually based on numerical modelling, e.g. Finite Element Method (FEM). Numerical methods tend to be more conservative when analysing soil behaviour during deep excavation, whereas for practical and economic reasons this is not favoured. The inverse analysis allows for...

In seismically active areas, liquefaction hazards have always been a complicated aspect to evaluate as part of the seismic design of a project. In the case of the design of critical facilities, this becomes crucial, as beyond design basis conditions may elevate the seismic loads significantly and create a considerable liquefaction risk in areas...

In this study, the assessment of the KIJK dike follows the new guidelines given by POV-M 2018 using PLAXIS. The macrostability assessment and design of the dike is examined for two cases. In the first case the dike is assessed based on the in-situ conditions (Green dike) whereas in the second case a cantilever sheet pile wall is used in the...

Müller Verpress piles are driven displacement piles which inject grout at the enlarged tip of the pile into the surrounding soil. Performed full-scale tests were not able to be loaded the pile upon failure, as the pile can resist forces which are significantly larger than its design capacity. This type of pile is known for its large tensile...

Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies are changing the conventional structural design process. BIM level-1 and level-2 are providing guidelines and frameworks for standardization with the standard Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and collaborative design respectively. However, the predicted full potential of BIM, BIM level-3, which...

Quay structures play an important role in society. How much load these structures can withstand however is not certain. This MSc thesis contains insight into the load capacity of the old Amazonehaven and the current SIF quay structures. Both are quay structures which use a combined sheet pile wall, a reinforced concrete relieving platform, M.V....

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...

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...
