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...

Jack-ups are used for offshore wind turbine installation (OWTI). To assess whether a jack-up can safely operate in a desired geographic location with known seismic activity, an earthquake response analysis is required for structural verification. This analysis is generally carried out according to the codes of the International Organization for...

Although relevant information regarding the curtain walls structural damage state is available, hardly any data referring to the seismic loading effect on the overall fa├žade performance is found in the literature. The present research attempts to assess the unitised curtain walls seismic performance by identifying the occurring damage mechanisms...

A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

Natural soil deposits may possess a highly anisotropic nature. The fabric anisotropy of soils which is induced during the soil formation process can lead to severe variation in field scale responses. Although the influence of fabric on the response of sands is well known and several advanced constitutive models have been developed to account for...

New offshore wind farms consisting of monopile-founded Offshore Wind Turbines (OWTs) are to be built in earthquake-prone areas. To design the monopile foundation and to accurately define the dynamic response of an OWT, the soil-monopile-superstructure interaction should be modelled properly. Due to the fact that the Three-Dimensional (3D) Finite...

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...

Historical or existing buildings are often composed of brick or stone masonry walls, and timber floors and roofs. When these buildings are subjected to earthquakes, the interaction among such structural components is essential to avoid collapse or excessive damage to the constructions. In this framework, a crucial role is played by the...

This paper presents numerical and experimental studies on semi-active seismic response control of structures equipped with variable stiffness and damping structural joints. Such adaptive joints, which are comprised of a shape memory polymer (SMP) core reinforced by an SMP-aramid composite skin, function as load-transfer components as well as...

The paper establishes a computationally inexpensive method to deal with the dynamic response of liquid storage tanks subjected to seismic excitation including dynamic soil-structure interaction. The tank is modelled as a thin shell, the stored liquid is described asan inviscid and incompressible fluid and the soil medium is modelled as an...

Gas extraction has caused increased seismic activity in the area of Groningen, bringing about considerable damage to houses. The houses are generally old masonry houses with flexible timber diaphragms. It is of importance to assess the response of these houses in order to apply proper retrofit measures. There has been substantial research on...

The growing interest in the development of offshore wind farms in seismic active areas demands a better insight into the requirements earthquakes impose on the design of wind turbine foundations. The complexity of the soil-structure interaction (SSI) during an earthquake results in large uncertainties in the design process of a monopile...

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 actual shear capacity of existing reinforced concrete solid slab bridges, constructed before 1960 in the Netherlands, is subject of an extensive research nowadays, since additional sources, increasing the total shear capacity of concrete slabs, have been ascertained to be present. In addition, the increasing occurrence of human-induced...

The increase of the human-induced seismicity in the Groningen has increased the interest of all stakeholders to ensure the structural safety of all residents in the affected area. While there are already many conventional structural strengthening methods that are proposed and being implemented in the affected area, the study of a new innovative...

This thesis focuses on the dynamic analysis of liquid storage tanks subjected to seismic excitation with its primary aim being the development of a semi-analytical model able to predict this dynamic response accurately. In engineering practice, there are two primary methods to solve this problem. Numerical models based primarily on the finite...

This work investigates the effects of the choice of different ensembles of ground motions on the seismic assessment of existing RC buildings through nonlinear dynamic analysis. Nowadays indeed, all the main International Seismic Codes provide a soil classification which is based on the shear wave velocity, the soil morphology and the assumed...

Wintershall is operating a number of Buntsandstein fields in the Southern North Sea. It has proven a major exploration challenge in the area to predict the reservoir quality of these fields based on seismic data only. The effect of salt present in the area plugging the pore space leads at first sight to similar seismic responses on post-stack...
