Masonry structures occupy a significant share of the current building stock due to widespread material availability and cost-effectiveness. Regions with high seismicity, like the Himalayas, have typically developed local seismic culture over the centuries. This has led to improved construction techniques providing an enhanced seismic performance...

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...

In the last two decades, the province of Groningen, located in the North-East of the Netherlands, has been subjected to an increasing number of earthquakes induced by gas extractions. The existing building stock is mainly composed by unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings not conceived to resist seismic loads. The need of reducing the...

Sequentially Linear Analysis (SLA) is a proven robust alternative to incremental-iterative solution methods in nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) of quasi-brittle specimen. The core of the method is in its departure from a load, displacement or arc-length driven incremental approach (aided by internal iterations to establish equilibrium)...

Ennali, N. (author)
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...

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...

In the recent years, increasing induced seismic activities have been observed in the northern part of the Netherlands due to gas extraction. These seismic events may cause severe damages to the building stock in this area, which is mainly composed of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings not designed to withstand seismic loads. An extensive...

The increasing seismic activity observed in the last few years in the northern part of the Netherlands (Groningen region) due to geo-resources exploitation raised the need of assessing the current building stock, which is mainly made of low-rise unreinforced masonry structures. <br/>In this thesis the performance of the equivalent frame...

The offshore industry and especially the oil and gas production, has faced a remarkable growth in the last decades, causing an increase in the population of offshore structures. The overwhelming majority of these structures are bottom founded and mostly made out of steel. Over these decades much experience has been gained with the design and...

Structural blast analysis is usually done with two load levels for different design stages; the Strength Level Blast, SLB, and the Ductility Level Blast, DLB. Strength Level Blast is the lower magnitude overpressure (with a higher frequency of occurrence and lower consequence) and Ductility Level Blast is the higher magnitude overpressure (with...

One of the tests in the ESECMaSE project is the large scale earthquake test on a building. The finite element model that is discussed in this thesis is based on this pseudo-dynamic test. The material model follows from a macro modelling approach and has smeared-cracks. The mode shape and eigenfrequencies are obtained through an eigenvalue...

Part I: The computer program INTRA models the collapse behavior of trusswork offshore structures with the aid of two types of elements: 'Beam-column' elements, designed to simulate bending dominated failure of structural members, and 'strut' elements, that can represent normal force dominated failure. The behavior of both types of INTRA elements...
