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...

This case study explores the utilization of distributed fiber optic sensors (DFOS) in wooden foundation piles, for assessing and monitoring the stress distribution along their length. Three spruce and three pine foundation piles instrumented with DFOS were driven into the soil in a testing field in Amsterdam and axially loaded in compression....

In the historic city centre of Amsterdam (NL), the most widespread foundation system consists of wooden piles. With the aim of modelling and predicting remaining service life of these foundations and the piles in particular, one of the possible methods for collecting data and monitoring their condition consists of micro-drilling (MD)...

Timber pile foundations are widespread in many areas around Europe and North-America. Especially in areas with weak soils, timber pile foundations have been a very good and economic solution. That foundations can be up to 500 years in service in cities like Venice, Amsterdam, Boston and many others. Degradation of the piles may occur over...

In a world where the awareness of global warming and climate change increases, the shift towards sustainable energy is essential. In the upcoming years, an increasing number of offshore wind farms is expected. Over the past years, all the 'best spots' are taken and the new locations in tougher soil conditions or even rock have to be overcome....

Low groundwater levels could have negative consequences in urban areas, such as wooden pile degradation and accelerated land subsidence. Controlling groundwater levels by infiltration systems that recharge the groundwater could be important to prevent these problems. This research evaluates the technical effectiveness of different groundwater...

In this thesis different models are considered which can deal with the interaction between pile foundations and structures. This to find the most efficient way to model pile foundation structures whereby both the efficiency of the design as building process are taken into account. This are the models D-Pile (geotechnical), Scia Engineer ...

The open-ended large diameter piles, used by Woodside Offshore Petroleum Ltd. as foundation for the offshore platform in Goodwyn-A, Australia, experienced deformations during their installation. The cause of this deformation was not clear as they were never observed before. Pile tips seemed to have obtained a sort of peanut shape deformation....
