The rudders of moored FPSO’s are fixed in the center to avoid unwanted rudder motions. This is often done by mechanical locking of the rudder machine. Due to waves and current, the loads on the rudder are higher than expected, causing failure of the locking system. An empirical study is executed to predict the combined wave and current loads on...

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.

This research investigates how the equivalent frame method in combination with a sequentially linear analysis can be used to model the behaviour of a façade of an unreinforced masonry structure, subjected to a lateral pushover load. The experimental data of the two-story building experiment at the University of Pavia is used.
Two different...

Current literature on the usage of the experience curve in a societal cost-benefit analysis is lacking. It is unclear how the experience curve should be used in a societal cost benefit analysis and how large the effect or added value is. This thesis uses a case study to analyses effects of the experience curve on a societal cost benefit analysis...
