In the Netherlands, a lot of traffic congestion occurs on motorways. This problem is most severe nearby larger cities. Utrecht is one of these cities. To improve traffic flow in this area, a huge masterplan is designed by Rijkswaterstaat called “A27/A12 Ring Utrecht”. One part of this masterplan consists of the motorway A27 at Amelisweerd. Here,...

Orthotropic steel decks are widely used in bridge construction nowadays, especially in case of long span bridges. One of the main problems of bridges that utilize this technology is the susceptibility to fatigue failure. Cyclic loading due to wheel loads, in combination with the complex network of welded details, make such types of decks prone...

Highway bridges along the coast and small river bridges in mountainous regions can be submerged during storm surges or strong rainfall events, respectively. Loss of serviceability during these conditions can dramatically hamper the evacuation plan and the capacity for emergency transportation, thus it is essential to ensure the stability of...

Collapse of partially or fully submerged river bridges as a result of river floods is investigated. To this end, post-failure analysis of a bridge in Japan’s Iwate Prefecture that collapsed in 2013 is conducted. Failure of this particular bridge is atypical because piers have also toppled over, which can be attributed to the spread footing...

This report is the result of an IPD (Integrated Product Design) master thesis at the faculty of industrial design engineering at the TU Delft. The company, for which the project was executed, is mainly focused on manufacturing flight-deck seating for the airline industry (pilot seats for airliners). Their biggest and main client is Boeing, for...

Digital Image Correlation is a cheap and easy to use measurement method that has been proved to characterise any solid material parameters up to plastic deformation range. The digital image correlation measurement system is based on the tracking of a collective number of pixels from the surface of the reference image to the deformed image. This...

Offshore assets experience wave forcings on a daily basis. Whilst the assets are designed with an airgap to protect the deck from these impacts, environments are prone to change, leaving the airgap to be insufficient.

Wave-in-deck (WID) is the phenomenon of waves hitting the deck despite of the airgap. The forcing exerted on the deck...

Implementation of touchscreen technology on the flight deck has already been announced by multiple aircraft manufacturers. However, a number of unsolved challenges still stand in the way of large scale implementation. One of these challenges comes from using touchscreens as input device in a highly dynamic and turbulent environment. Effects from...

Industry is proposing touch-based solutions to modernize the flight management system, a necessary step to cope with increasing demands on lateral navigation as airspace congestion grows. However, research evaluating touchscreen effectiveness for navigation tasks on the flight deck is lacking. The SIMONA Research Simulator was used, with 12...

Offshore structures with partially filled storage tanks may experience sloshing of the cargo when exposed to waves. Inventive use on the topside result in storage tanks which are built as an integrated part of the deck structure. Weight control and available space is often a critical issue for offshore projects and can be improved by this...

Initiation and propagation of fatigue cracks under heavy traffic loading is one of the most frequent causes of damage for road steel bridges. A particular case where fatigue phenomena have often been observed is the orthotropic steel deck (OSD). Due to its intricate layout with plated structural components in different planes and the inherent...

Growing passenger dimensions and the demand for more comfort in the economy class cabin is a trend that is becoming more important during aircraft conceptual design. Based on recent investigations, it is known that current aircraft seat dimensions are not suitable and safe for a large part of the world population. Therefore, a change in aircraft...

Fatigue damage is a common problem in a lot of bridges with orthotropic steel decks. Frequent maintenance is required to prevent aggravation of the problems, which gives a lot of nuisance for the traffic using the bridge. This comes especially into play at large (river) crossings where not many alternatives are available. Therefore, methods are...

Fibre Reinforced Polymer bridge decks, thanks to their beneficial properties and various advantages over traditional materials, have great potential as a material used in bridge engineering. They exercise high specific strength and stiffness-to-weight-ratio, a property particularly interesting from the point of view of designers, as it provides...

This project is about wave impact on horizontal platforms. It investigates the interaction between ocean waves, mainly during hurricanes, and harbour jetties in coastal areas. Various types of loads can be identified when waves hit these kinds of coastal structures. The focus in this report will be on vertical loads (upward and downward) on...
