Hersbach, Rosa (author)
Foundations of buildings ensure the safety and serviceability are upheld. A common type of<br/>foundations used in the Netherlands is pile foundations which are typically founded on a thick sand layer in the subsurface. These pile foundations are the focus of this thesis and more specifically the methods used to design such foundations. This...

This paper proposes a novel framework for simulating the dynamics of beams on elastic foundations. Specifically, partial differential equations modeling Euler–Bernoulli and Timoshenko beams on the Winkler foundation are simulated using a causal physics-informed neural network (PINN) coupled with transfer learning. Conventional PINNs encounter...

Category theory is a branch of mathematics that provides a formal framework for understanding the relationship between mathematical structures. To this end, a category not only incorporates the data of the desired objects, but also "morphisms", which capture how different objects interact with each other. Category theory has found many...

In the historic city centre of Amsterdam (NL), the predominant foundation system is comprised of wooden piles. Due to their placement below the water table, these foundations are susceptible to bacterial decay. This study aims to investigate and compare various methods for characterizing decay patterns within the cross sections of piles...

Gender violence encompasses a multitude of morally problematic psychological, physical, and sexual behaviors that, in most countries, constitute criminal offenses. In this study, we investigate the association between moral foundations (Care, Fairness, Loyalty, Authority, and Sanctity) and punitive responses to gender violence offenses. Our...

This research addresses the environmental impact of foundations in lightweight housing units, focusing on BAM's timber house concept, FLOW. While the engineered timber superstructure is environmentally conscious, the foundation's contribution is often overlooked. The study aims to minimise the Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of FLOW houses by...

This study examines the effect of adding helical piles to the foundation mechanism of monopile installation templates. A monopile installation template is a gravity-based structure, which is placed on the seabed. The installation template is utilised for the installation of monopiles, and to ensure its verticality during this installation. At...

Offshore wind energy's rapid expansion underscores the need for accurate and efficient methods to analyze the behavior of monopile foundations supporting wind turbines. While three-dimensional (3D) analyses provide comprehensive insights, their computational demands are significant. As an alternative, one-dimensional (1D) models with spring...

Ever since the commissioning of the first offshore wind farm in October 1991, the offshore wind market has experienced exponential growth all around the world. As more wind farms will be built offshore in the future, onshore grid connection and transmission capacity may not be sufficient to integrate this growing amount of offshore wind farms....

This thesis describes the investigation of the lateral monopile response in weak rock and the effect of a zone of crushed rock that is induced by driven installation. The goal of the investigation is to study the impact of the weaker zone around a monopile on the lateral response. The thesis focuses on the modelling of a monopile in a finite...

A monopile installation project consists of the whole process of loading monopiles to vessels, transporting monopiles to the wind farm and drilling monopiles in the seabed. Each installation project has different characteristics as the weather at the installation location, the distances to the suppliers and the vessels that are available differ...

For the installation of suction pile jackets, a new installation method initiated by SPT Offshore could extend the allowable size for suction pile jackets used as foundations for offshore wind turbines. This method involves installing the suction piles separately from the jacket frame. First, the suction piles are installed on the seabed. Then,...

Moral values influence humans in decision-making. Pluralist moral philosophers argue that human morality can be represented by a finite number of moral values, respecting the differences in moral views. Recent advancements in NLP show that language models retain a discernible level of knowledge in deontological ethics and moral norms of society....

When making decisions, people are automatically guided by their moral compass. However, AI agents need to be conditioned in order to be steered towards moral behaviour. An environment that can be used to train and test agents is the Jiminy Cricket environment. The Jiminy Cricket environment consists of a set of text-based narrative games, where...

Morality is a fundamental concept that guides humans in the decision-making process. Given the rise of large language models in society, it is necessary to ensure that they adhere to human principles, among which morality is of substantial importance. While research has been done regarding artificial agents behaving morally, current state of the...

Due to global warming causing climate change, extreme conditions like droughts and floods are increasingly happening. Currently buildings in the Netherlands are experiencing the consequences of these extreme conditions, which they are not build for. Especially the foundations are a big problem. Therefore this paper is aiming to find a foundation...

Equity Road is a foundation in Valencia that provides professional opportunities to vulnerable local groups such as immigrants and the unemployed. The preference for regional resources, such as wool, within the Red Thread, creates social sustainability by training people as manufacturing experts of fashion goods and therefore ensuring a circular...

Heerema Marine Contractors is assigned to execute the installation of 64 monopiles for the He Dreiht Offshore Wind Farm provided by Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW). The installation of the monopiles is done by means of a template structure. This template is specifically designed for this project and is installed on the seabed temporarily. The...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...
