In recent years, there has been a significant increase in inspecting and evaluating transport infrastructure. Traditionally, these structural data were collected manually by measuring and redrawing the construction against design documents. In recent decades, laser scanning technology can help collect 3D data rapidly and accurately. The 3D...

The current owners of the Scheveningen Pier are starting to head into the second phase of their exploitation plan, which is to replace the current pier. This new pier is larger than the current pier and can exploit at a higher level. This thesis creates a design for a new Scheveningen Pier. A design method is used, which combines the engineering...

The project seeks to stabilise and reverse the degradation of the pier’s walls so it remains available to its users. The structure acts as a stabilizer for this piece of land, so as not to let it disappear.<br/>The light structure takes inspiration from a bird perched on a branch, a metaphor for young Amsterdammer’s searching for their place in...

The aim of this thesis is to propose a simple technique to estimate the maximum impact forces acting on bridge piers in the event of ship collisions. This technique is determined for Dutch commercial inland waterway ships (CEMT classes) and set up to be applied by bridge engineers to determine the required bridge pier strength. Many collision...

In this paper, a dataset collecting the results of in-plane cyclic tests on unreinforced masonry piers, carried out within different research projects, is presented. The dataset includes brick and block walls with different materials, bed-and head-joint typologies, dimensions, boundary conditions and vertical applied loads. The development 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...

In recent years, seismic assessment of existing unreinforced masonry (URM) structures is being increasingly based on nonlinear methods. The in-plane displacement capacity represents one of the most crucial yet still debated features of the nonlinear behaviour of URM piers. International codes often employ empirical models to estimate the pier...

The lateral resistance represents one of the most significant wall parameters to be used in the seismic analyses for the design/assessment of masonry buildings. In this article, an investigation on in-plane lateral strength of URM piers has been proposed thorough a comparison between the results from codified criteria and the outcomes of several...

The aviation industry is known for its rapid growth, and fierce competitiveness. To keep up to the competition, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) needs to extend its infrastructure, resulting in the development of the new A-Pier. The development of the new A-Pier provides an opportunity to KLM to implement improvements in apron design. Safety is...

Onderzoek naar de ontgrondingen rond brugpijlers met een focus op de ontrgronding rond de pijlers van de Waalbruggen in Nijmegen. Door het graven van een nevengeul ontstaat een andere hydraulische situatie waardoor de bescherming rond de pijler aangepast moet worden.

In the Mekong Delta Vietnam, the construction of sluices with the purpose of retaining fresh water and preventing salt water intrusion potentially plays a very important role. However, the structures constructed in small rivers according to local or traditional technology revealed many disadvantages related to the economical, evacuation and...

We present a 3-D physics-based high-resolution modeling approach to the dynamics of underwater ripples and dunes. The flow is modeled by large eddy simulation on a Cartesian grid with local refinements. The sediment transport is modeled by computing pickup, transport over the bed, transport in the water column, and deposition of rigid spherical...

The sediment transport module of REEF3D is used to calculate the scour and the deposition pattern for abutment, pier and contraction under constant discharge and for pier under waves. The time development of scour for all these cases is also observed. To this effect, the Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations are solved in all three...

Traditional guidelines on rock protection at circular piers predominantly focus on preventing shear failure (by choosing a sufficiently large rock size), winnowing failure (by designing an appropriate filter) and edge failure (by selecting a sufficient extent). In particular areas (e.g. in an eroding river channel or in an area with large-scale...

The demand for large discharge sluices in Viet Nam is increasing as the constructions of small river barriers show their restrictions in flooding and salt intrusion protection. The main objective of this study is therefore to research an appropriate design for the sluice structure type that can be applied in Vung Tau Go Cong, which is the...

This document is the fifth edition of HEC-18. It presents the state of knowledge and practice for the design, evaluation and inspection of bridges for scour. There are two companion documents, HEC-20 entitled "Stream Stability at Highway Structures", and HEC-23 entitled "Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures". These three documents...

This research focuses on the behaviour of a granular scour protection around piles when the bed is subjected to bed degradation. Furthermore, engineering guidelines are provided to account for bed degradation in the design of the initial scour protection. To address the behaviour of the protection, a physical model is used and to obtain the...
