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...

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...

Most of the bridges in Europe countries are now approaching their design life. Therefore, at present crucial is the choice of the most suitable retrofitting solution taking the current design standards into account. From an economic point of view the costs related to the foundations adaptation are not negligible at all, even because design...

In the low-lying parts of The Netherlands challenging ground conditions are often encountered. Thick layers of soft material such as peat and clay are present and pile foundations into deeper sand layers are required when objects are constructed that have to transfer significant loads to the subsurface without inducing settlement (differences)....

The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) is the largest port in Europe and in order to maintain its status, it would need to expand. For the expansion, an extensive survey of the subsurface is needed for the construction of new port areas and its geotechnical structures. As part of designing the geotechnical structures, the subsurface is often modelled as...

Risk-based and probabilistic reliability design methods are starting to be integrated into the daily geotechnical engineering practice, as shown by the current draft of EN1997 (Eurocode 7), which explicitly allows Reliability-based verification of limit states. The semi-probabilistic design methods in EN1997 are a compromise between ease of use...

Vibration-based structural damage detection (SDD) has been a subject of intense research in structural health monitoring (SHM) for large civil engineering structures over the decades. The performance of the conventional SDD approaches predominantly relies on the rational choices of the damage feature and classifier. Hand-crafted features or...

Inner–city quay walls fulfil a number of very important functions where the retention of water is the most important one observed from a structural perspective. Despite their importance, not all of these structures are very well maintained, especially the older ones. Each municipality has their own maintenance regime, depending on the allocated...

In this master thesis the behaviour of a high speed railway track constructed on top of a pile foundation with settlements under a dynamic load has been analysed. Therefore, a model was developed in the software program DARTS, dynamic analysis of rail track structures. In DARTS the railway track was modelled by stiff and elastic layers, which...

The city of Amsterdam contains about 1600 bridges and 600 kilometres of quay walls. Of these walls, about 200 kilometres are of masonry walls placed on a timber floor and founded on timber piles. These quay walls are sometimes over 100 years old. Due to the increasing loads in the past century and the degrading of material properties in the...

Pasterkamp, S. (author)
Prefabricated concrete piles have been used for the foundation of bigger buildings for about a century. Often a change in function, an addition (also vertically) or another type of alteration is required, resulting in different loads on the foundation. There are several complicating factors that return regularly in these assessments. The first...

Frissen, Mitch (author)
Currently, the settlements of high-rise buildings are calculated based on two methods. The single pile settlements (s1), are generated due to mobilised shaft friction and pile tip resistance. These settlements are determined with analytical methods (i.e. NEN 9997-1, 2017). Settlements related to pile group behaviour in soil layers below pile tip...

Over the last couple years, a number investigations into the α factors used for the cone penetration test (CPT) based calculation methods for the base and shaft capacity of driven piles have been carried out. These investigation, express different concerns and limitation of the currently used CPT based calculation methods. Prompting the need for...

The analysis and prediction of damage to buildings resting on highly compressible fine-grained “soft soils” containing (organic) clay and peat are key issues to be addressed for a proper management of subsidence-affected urban areas. Among the probabilistic approaches suggested in literature, those oriented to the generation of empirical...

Numerical modelling of pile foundations can be done in several ways. In commercial finite element packages two main options are available; using volume elements with interface elements between the pile and soil domains and the embedded beam approach. The embedded beam element was first proposed by Sadek and Shahrour (2004) and considers a beam...

A time-dependent capacity increase has often been observed for driven displacement piles in sand. Long-term bearing capacity increase after dissipation of excess pore water pressure is referred to as set-up. Significant increases in axial capacity have been reported where the rate of set-up varied between 15 and 75% per log cycle of time. <br/>...

TheNetherlands is a densely populated country and is located in an areawhere the shallowsubsurfacemainly consists ofHolocene and Pleistocene soils. To build permanent structures, enough bearing capacity is needed to provide sufficient support for these structures. However, Holocene (soft) soils typically do not provide sufficient support. In the...

Widely deformable subsoil verifies a predominant concern in the design and construction of high-rise buildings. Extensive total and differential settlements are observed that are usually not in accordance to the predictions. In the Netherlands, the problem appears to be more intense in Rotterdam, the city that counts the largest number of...

The aim of this study is to establish a procedure to determine resistance factors for newly developed pile products through an example of the rotational intrusion steel pile (RI pile). RI pile is a newly developed steel pile product which has the vane type tip structure to resist reliably against vertical load and to intrude easily by rotating...
