About 70 prestressed concrete T-beam bridges, constructed in the Netherlands between 1953–1977, are still in use today with many located in the main highway network. This type of bridge consists of prefabricated and prestressed T-shaped beams, with an integrated deck slab, cross-beams and transverse prestressing. Even if these bridges are well...

Post-earthquake structural damage shows that out-of-plane wall collapse is one of the most prevalent failure mechanisms in unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. This issue is particularly critical in Groningen, a province located in the northern part of the Netherlands, where low-intensity ground shaking has occurred since 1991 due to gas...

Masonry arch bridges have been around for centuries and are, in the Netherlands, mostly located in historical city centres. As the axle loads of vehicles passing these bridges have increased over the years, the need to re-evaluate the structural safety of these bridges has increases. To do so, different techniques have been developed. However,...

Gates are an essential part of navigational locks, as they are responsible for creating a water barrier and can be repositioned to allow passage for maritime transit. Most lock gates are made of steel but a recent project in Sweden challenged the status quo by constructing the first stainless steel lock gate. The main question of this thesis...

Piled foundations are commonly employed to reduce settlements of artificial earth embankments on soft soil strata and geosynthetic reinforcements are installed at the embankment base to increase pile spacing and reduce construction costs. Despite the well-documented effectiveness of this technique, the mechanical processes, developing during...

A narrow backfill zone is formed when retaining walls are built near existing stabilized structures (e.g., rock faces). In such circumstances, the classical passive earth pressure coefficient is no longer applicable, and a correction factor is required for the design. This paper aims to develop analytical solutions for estimating the passive...

Introduction: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) of the arch is challenging given its complex geometry and the involvement of supra-aortic arteries. Different branched endografts have been designed for use in this region, but their haemodynamic performance and the risk for post-intervention complications are not yet clear. This study...

In design, the sectional depth of reinforced concrete spread footings is usually governed by design code provisions for punching shear, which are derived primarily from experiments on slab-column connections. Previous experiments have shown that the punching behavior of concentrically loaded spread footings differs from that of slab-column...

Due to increasingly efficient engineering of the last decades, the design process for civil structures is heading in the direction of optimal solutions. Among other things, the reduction in self-weight enhances the susceptibility to dynamic loads. As the process for the determination of realistic modal parameters from a digital model often...

Every human being and every conscious life form on this planet aims to be happy. Happiness is something everyone is after - consciously or unconsciously. People try to ‘achieve’ it through various actions that are meaningful to them. There are many definitions and interpretations of happiness. Gautam Buddha wisely once said- “There is no path to...

The Circular Arch Bridge is a pedestrian bridge consisting out of four different recycled materials: cast glass, ceramic, circument and geopolymer concrete. Due to an increasing amount of vibration problems in modern pedestrian bridges they should not only be designed for static loads, but dynamic loads have to be considered as well. There are...

Active earth pressure on retaining structures supporting a narrow column of soil cannot be properly analysed using Coulomb's theory. Finite element limit analysis (FELA) shows that the soil form multiple failure surfaces if the soil column is sufficiently narrow. This paper proposes a framework for active earth pressure estimation for narrow...

There is currently a lack of an available design approach to estimate the earth pressure in narrow backfills behind retaining walls rotated about the top (RT). The considerations of some significant factors, primarily load transfer mechanisms (soil arching effect and horizontal shear stress in soils), failure mechanisms (shape and number of...

This study investigated the effect of fire on the ultimate load-bearing capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) slabs. The structural response of RC circular specimens subjected to static load conditions after exposure to a hydrocarbon fire on one side of the specimen was examined. Two fire exposure times were considered (60 and 120 min) in...

The strip model describes a load path prior to failure that can be tailored to a wide range of slabs under concentrated loads, both concentric and eccentric. Eccentric punching shear can occur in concrete slab-column connections subjected to shear and unbalanced moment, such as edge and corner columns. This paper shows how the strip model is...

The Ikebana gallery school positions itself in a dense urban context with a secure connection to its didactic elements and the reappreciation of the chosen craft. It is a multi-faced project which sheds light on education, residents and parties to re-direct the urban context. My interventions for the Gasthuisplaats allow me the opportunity to...

The main objective of this research is to understand the development of arch action in a single T-beam acting as part of the bridge system, ignoring the distribution of the load in transverse direction. As the beam is loaded, several mechanisms work simultaneously in the bridge system, resulting in enhanced ultimate load bearing capacity of the...

How does a brick arch become part of a structuralist building? In this project I unravel the material layers of Van Stigt's Leiden Faculty and add a new architectural language that reappreciates the craftmanship behind brickwork.

Arch bridges are important transportation infrastructures widely distributed in China, but they are prone to structural defects due to aging without routine inspection and maintenance. Therefore, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of these bridges is urgently needed by civil engineers to effectively reduce the risk of bridge damage or...
