In this report, the applicability of Precast Concrete Sandwich panels (PCSPs) is analysed and improved. This is done by a multitude of methods: a literature study is performed, an advanced, non-linear Finite Element model and simple linear analytical model are developed, and calculations have been performed on a design-structure from Lievense |...

Existing reinforced concrete (RC) structures can be strengthened using Strain Hardening Cementitious Composites (SHCC). The ability of SHCC in exhibiting a ductile response under tensile load due to strain­-hardening after crack initiation makes it a viable material to be used in, both, construction and retrofitting of concrete structures. The...

Study relating Acoustic Emission (AE) energy to fracture energy has been conducted in the past and a correlation has been reported between the two. The scope of these studies has remained limited to laboratory size specimens with known crack location and the energy release being investigated on a global scale. The objective of this research is...

In recent years, a growing amount of movable highway bridges with a timber deck are approaching the end of their service life. Since these bridges have opened, the traffic intensity has increased yearly and environmental effects had the opportunity to deteriorate the bridges slowly. Inspections revealed that the main load-carrying elements are...

Permeable pavements have been widely used as an effective means to improve hydrological characteristics and the ecology of the urban environment. This study aims to investigate the response of fully permeable pavement (FPP) subjected to dynamic loading under dry and saturated conditions. A full-scale test track topped with polyurethane bound...

This study evaluates the degradation of wheels and rails at railway crossings. The evaluation method is composed of 1) finite element simulation of dynamic wheel/crossing interaction and 2) multi-criteria analysis of wheel/rail degradation in terms of yield behavior, rolling contact fatigue (RCF) and wear. With the aid of this method, we...

With the offshore wind industry rapidly expanding worldwide, geotechnical research is being devoted to foundation optimisation – most intensively for large-diameter monopiles. The analysis and design of monopiles still suffers from significant uncertainties in relation to cyclic/dynamic loading conditions. This work aims to shed new light on...

The paper presents the development of a three-dimensional finite-element model for pile tests in dense Dunkirk sand, conducted as part of the PISA project. The project was aimed at developing improved design methods for laterally loaded piles, as used in offshore wind turbine foundations. The importance of the consistent and integrated...

Crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) can be considered as a binary composite system where rubber particles are embedded in the bitumen matrix. The bitumen-rubber interaction process (mainly swelling) significantly changes the mechanical properties of both bitumen and rubber phases. This study aims to predict the complex moduli of CRMB binders...

A reliability-based analysis framework, accounting for uncertainty arising from the spatial variability of soil properties, has been validated for the controlled, well-instrumented slope failure of an historic dyke in the Netherlands. Using soil property statistics derived from the results of laboratory and cone penetration test (CPT) data for...

Single large diameter piles, known as monopiles, are, nowadays, the most common foundation type for offshore wind turbines (OWT). Several research initiatives have been focusing on improving the conventional design practice. The PISA (Pile Soil Analysis) joint industry research project resulted in a proposal for a new design methodology for OWT...

Guidelines dating back 50 years, NASA SP-8007, are employed today in the design of thin-walled launch vehicle structures. Due to advances in materials, structural designs, and manufacturing techniques since the publication of SP-8007, the development of new knockdown factors for contemporary launch vehicle structures is an ongoing subject of...

Part I:<br/>Inflicted head injury by shaking trauma (IHI-ST) is often simulated to better understand the injury mechanisms and to analyze whether violent shaking can cause head injury in infants. Computational models are usually subjected to linear and rotational inputs to simulate shaking scenarios. In existing studies, the head’s rotation...

There are several methods to perform fatigue assessment as described by the Eurocode 3 and the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The codes establish the relation between stress ranges and their respective number of cycles until failure of the detail. This method is called S-N curves, however this is based mainly on nominal stresses. A...
