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...

In this paper the dynamics of a weakly nonlinear elastic string on a Winkler elastic foundation is studied. The foundation may be spatially heterogeneous. At one end of the string a mass-spring system is attached, and the other end of the string is fixed. The string is assumed to be long, and the lower part of the spectrum of the string is...

The historic inner-cities in The Netherlands are largely known for their iconic channels and their accompanying quay walls, of which a significant number were constructed over 100 years ago. Due to the limited available space in the sub-surface of the urban environment, a high number of utility lines (i.e. potable water pipes and sewer systems)...

Areas of railways with considerable variation of track properties encountered near structures such as bridges and tunnels are referred to as transition zones. Degradation rates at these transition zones are higher compared to the remaining railways. These high degradation rates result in high maintenance expenses. In order to come up with...

In this paper, the dynamics and the buckling loads for an Euler–Bernoulli beam resting on an inhomogeneous elastic, Winkler foundation are studied. An analytical, asymptotic method is proposed to determine the stability of the Euler–Bernoulli beam for various types of inhomogeneities in the elastic foundation taking into account different...

With increasing evidence of human-induced accelerated climate change, the need of sustainable, non-polluting, energy sources becomes evident. Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to create a sustainable global energy mix. The offshore wind industry has developed rapidly over the last years....

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...
