This thesis introduces a fragility-based framework in order to perform a custom assessment of the complex Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. By applying a conditional approach to loading parameters, the statistical dependency between failure mechanisms and structure elements can be described separately for the strength and loading part of the...

Subsea pipeline are extensively used for the transport of hydrocarbons from offshore wells, to platforms, pump stations and to onshore facilities. Because the installation of pipelines is time consuming it is responsible for a significant amount of the total costs of a project. Thus the workability of the installation is of great importance.When...

Vibration-based structural health monitoring of civil engineering structures is receiving increasing attention in recent years. This is due to the development of more robust system identification techniques as well as improvements with regard to the practicality of installing the necessary instrumentation. Health monitoring systems are more...

Pipe laying projects are getting more challenging due to increasing operational depth of pipeline. The increasing depth requires more of the strength and load bearing capability of the pipeline and its girth welds. The assessment method used for checking the integrity of flaws in girth welds is called Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) and is...

The municipality of Amsterdam is facing the challenge to deal with uncertainties accompanied with the maintenance planning of maintenance activities on bridges. Long term asset planning (LTAP) has the goal to show the proposed expenditures, capital and operational expenditures (CAPEX and OPEX), for the long term to be able to build up a monetary...

Loss of Control is the primary contributor to aviation fatalities. To prevent this type of accident, flight envelope protection is considered to be a necessary development. The calculation of the Safe Flight Envelope provides a bound on the states that can safely be approached by the aircraft. Although theoretically accurate, some states may not...

In the framework of LuFo R\&T projects a number of Rolls-Royce Deutschland Low and High Pressure Compressor rotor blades were geometrically scanned at the beginning and end of their life cycle. Based on this data component wear, ageing and manufacturing variability across the life cycle of the engine can be derived. Using Computational Fluid...

The recent advancement of the autonomous vehicle has raised the need for reliable environmental perception. This is evident, as an autonomous vehicle has to perceive and interpret its local environment in order to execute reactive and predictive control action. Object Tracking is an integral part of vehicle perception, as it enables the vehicle...

Decision-theoretic planning techniques are increasingly being used to obtain (optimal) plans for domains involving uncertainty, which may be present in the form of the controlling agent's actions, its percepts, or exogenous factors in the domain. These techniques build on detailed probabilistic models of the underlying system, for which Markov...

Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) units are extensively utilized in remote offshore areas for deep water developments where a pipeline infrastructure is not an economically viable solution. Traditionally, FPSOs are converted from oil tankers, which entails that they are not equipped with an appropriate mooring system. A spread...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

The increasing demand for electricity offers many opportunities for renewable energy production, of which one alternative is tidal stream energy. Several feasibility studies have shown that the global tidal stream energy potential can contribute significantly to producing renewable energy. This tidal energy can mostly be produced at the 'tidal...

Various flood protection measures are studied across the globe, and nature-friendly and environmentally resilient methods are gaining more attention. As part of the building with nature initiative, the project BE SAFE (Bio-Engineering for SAFEty) studies the effects of a vegetated foreshore as a flood protection measure which is found to be very...

The assessment of rock mechanical data is a fundamental step in the process of evaluating the profitability of an open pit mine. The steepness of bench, interramp and resulting overall slope angles have a direct effect on the stripping ratio, therefore on the profitability of the mining operation. With the recently challenging metal prices in...

Conventional hydrological models use a deterministic approach. One could think of it like a black box, having an input, parameters, relations and an output. The parameters are calibrated by comparing the model output with observations of the system response (for example river runoff). When assessing the uncertainty in models the focus is often...

All over the world rubble mound breakwaters are built to protect harbours, shorelines, and other vulnerable coastal areas against wave action and currents. Most of the designs for these structures use so called deterministic or semi-probabilistic design methods (level I). With these methods insight in the uncertainties, and consequently the...

It was unclear what level of reliability was provided by appliance of the Eurocode load models for fatigue due to train loads, meaning that it might be insufficient. Therefore, it was investigated what the provided reliability is, compared to what is should be. Within this report, the focus is solely on fatigue induced by bending moments on...

Typical for the Dutch landscape are the many polders, which are situated below sea level and below waters directly surrounding the polders. A visual separation between land and water is caused by the flood defences that protect the polders from flooding. In 2005, artist Paul Izeboud came with the idea to make a transparent flood defence, thereby...

In this research the reliability of dikes are studied that are influenced by the presence of buildings. Along many Dutch dikes (residential) buildings are present. These buildings may influence the reliability of the dike positevely and or negatively. In this study a probabilistic method is developed to determine the influence of a building,...
