When a breakwater is under heavy wave attack, the concrete armour units will occasionally move, causing a collision between two concrete armour units. This process is called rocking, and induces stresses in the concrete, that may lead to breakage of the concrete armour units. This MSc Thesis provides a probabilistic method to predict breakage of...

The SBR richtlijn A states threshold values for the vibration speeds causing a 1% probability of failure of masonry structures. These threshold values are very useful for structural designers, because during the construction of new structures or the demolition of existing structures, it is important to know if these structural vibrations can...

Sewer assets face a great challenge for being underground assets and for experiencing constant deterioration and aging. Reactive decisions are no longer technically nor economically viable, and hence asset managers are migrating to the implementation of proactive strategies. Despite this, managers are making decisions that are poorly justified,...

General frameworks for reliability differentiation have evolved over time and are mainly developed for buildings. However, recommendations for the safety of existing quay walls are lacking. In this study, target reliability indices for assessing existing quay walls were derived by economic optimisation and by evaluating the requirements...

Many railway embankments across Europe were constructed over 150 years ago. These embankments were not subject to rigorous design practice but instead were crudely constructed using end tipping techniques. As a result, the majority of these embankments are overly steep and far in excess of the design angles recommended in Eurocode 7. Over recent...

In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

Geotechnical reliability-based limit state design methodologies are rapidly evolving to meet the demands of various applications. However, the accuracy of these new procedures should be independently assessed and improved as new loading test data is made available. This paper focuses on the assessment of two relatively new serviceability limit...

At the moment, for determining the safety of the dike ring areas around the IJsselmeer a possible failure of the Afsluitdijk is assumed to have no influence on loads occurring on the IJsselmeer dikes. As failure of the Afsluitdijk is always possible, the consequences of such a failure should be investigated. The objective of this thesis is to...

The increased use of advanced composite materials on primary aircraft structure has brought back to the forefront the question of how such structures perform under repeated loading. In particular, when damage or other stress risers are present, tests have shown that the load to cause failure after a given number of cycles is a decreasing...

Current design codes like the Eurocode use safety or reliability classes to assign target reliabilities to different types of structures or structural members according to the potential consequences of failure. That, in essence, is a risk-based criterion. A wide range of structures is designed with such codes, and distinction is made between...

The most densely populated and economical most valuable areas in The Netherlands lie below mean sea level. These areas are protected against the sea by a joint coastal dune system. The vital importance of this dune system is reflected in the extensive collection of Dutch legal regulations that ensure the safety level of the dunes. The assessment...

An appropriate assignment of probabilities of failure to subsystems and components in a structural system can bring a minimum of costs and risk. In this paper, a method for economic optimisation of rubble mound breakwaters using pre-assigned probabilities of failure is presented. Application to a design case shows that the proposed method is...

From the ten breakwaters we selected, on the amount of reliable information available, one breakwater in Richards Bay, South Africa. The preliminary check, made in the first phase, showed the design of this breakwater was rather conservative. From surveys done on the breakwater although, it appeared that the armor-layer was damaged in storms...
