Piles have been widely used as foundations to resist lateral loads. For the design of a laterally loaded pile, one of the most important inputs is the ultimate soil resistance (p<sub>ult</sub> = K<sub>ult</sub>Dσv<sup>′,whereK</sup>ult is the ultimate lateral soil resistance coefficient, D is the pile diameter, and σv<sup>′</sup> is the...

As a consequence of the difficulty to obtain complete direct information about the subsurface, and the importance of heterogeneity of soil properties in geotechnical design, a desire exists in the geotechnical community for a smarter use of the available data in common practice. The objective of this thesis is to provide a potential solution for...

Inefficient installation of pile foundations may lead to high risks of material damage, inadequate pile capacity, and time delays that can have significant financial implications to any kind of project, both onshore and offshore. Therefore, there is high demand for a comprehensive driveability analysis that considers key aspects of the...

In the last decades, renewable energies gained an increasing interest due to the environmental awareness of people, especially in the developed countries. Moreover sustainable resources represent a long-term investment full of possibilities of use. <br/>In the Netherlands a technology which is getting more and more popular to produce green...

The Automated Parameter Determination project aims to provide advanced geotechnical models parameters from in-situ tests in a transparent and flexible process. The framework was initially developed for coarse-grained soils, and it was needed to be expanded to all types of common soils. This report presents the expansion of the APD database to...

Recent, light earthquakes induced by the extraction of gas in the north of the Netherlands have been linked to light, mostly aesthetic damage of the traditional masonry structures in the region; this is also connected to economic losses and societal unrest. To be able to accurately assess the light damage, detailed finite element models are...

The safety in the high voltage substations rely on the integrity of its grounding grid. A single discontinuity at any part of the grounding grid may cause a swell in touch or step potential that may expose the personnel to a hazard of critical electric shock. It may also lead to malfunction of the protection devices leading to erroneous tripping...

The thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

Frozen soil is a powerful tool for engineering purposes due to its increased strength, stiffness and decreased permeability. Water between the soil particles bonds them together, making it possible to use frozen soil bodies as impermeable barriers and load-carrying structures. Furthermore, during a freeze and thaw cycle different processes cause...

This research investigates the Wilnis dike failure that occurred in the dry summer of 2003. It is believed that drought played an important role in decreasing the stability of the dike, finally leading to failure. In the reported MSc project the situation during drought is simulated with the help of finite element method programs Plaxis and...

Seismic vibrators are used to investigate the structure of the subsurface in the framework of soil and gas exploration, also to locate faults and rupture zones in earthquake investigations. Vibrators introduce seismic waves that propagate through the ground and are received by seismic sensors at some distance from the source. This enables...
