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. However, aging of the foundations can become a problem, as physical, biological and/or chemical degradation may occur over time. Now, that foundations...

This thesis tried to quantify the strength reduction of the soft soil layers of the experiment through a back analysis of the failure of the dyke without sheet pile wall. Residual strength hypothesis were formulated based on a literature study and the current design norm of dyke design on soft soil layers in the Netherlands. A Limit Equilibrium...

With the shift of the safety standards for levees from exceedance probability (standard 1996) to flooding probability (new standard), the part of the levee failure process after the initial occurrence of a failure mechanism becomes more important for the calculation of the strength and thus, reliability of the levee cross-section. Interactions...

The material point method (MPM) is used to model both rotational and horizontal sliding failure mechanisms of dykes under external (water) loading. To model the different failure mechanisms, an external hydrostatic water pressure has been applied on the canal side of the dyke by applying a newly developed boundary condition. The boundary...

This thesis takes an initial step in the research on the long term behaviour of composite-to-metal bonds that are loaded under hygrothermal conditions. It focuses on the response and behaviour of the adhesive in these bonds under moisture and loading. The thesis is inconclusive on the effect of loading on the water uptake. The load level and...

Concrete is recognized for being a fire-resistant construction material. At elevated temperatures concrete can, however, undergo considerable damage such as strength degradation, cracking, and explosive spalling. In recent decades, reuse of fire-damaged concrete structures by means of developing techniques to repair the degraded material has...

The recent application of Glass Reinforced Aluminium (Glare) in the Airbus A380 has proven to be a suitable candidate to replace metal structures. The reduction in weight and increased performance results in lower emissions and cost reduction. Therefore research has been performed at the Delft University of Technology, dedicated to the residual...

Ship grounding decreases the strength of ship hull structures once plastic deformation occurs during the event. In practice of ship societies, current method of determining residual strength of ship hull structures after grounding is to totally remove the plastically damaged parts. As plastically deformed part of ship hull structures might still...

Hydraulic timber structures such as mooring poles, fenders, lock gates and jetties are widely-used in inner and sea harbours all over the world. In general these structures give satisfactory performance with regard to the technical requirements. Because of the harsh exposure conditions such as brackish and contaminated water, drying-out,...

Kassapoglou, C. (author)
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...

De Rijck, J.J.M. (author)
The two historical fuselage failures, Comet in 1954 and Aloha in 1988, illustrate that similar accidents must be avoided which requires a profound understanding of the fatigue mechanisms involved, including analytical models to predict the fatigue behavior of riveted joints of a fuselage structure. The scope of the research project covers a...

Glare laminates are materials that consist of alternating aluminium and glass prepreg layers especially designed for aeroplane structures. The result is a material that combines the properties of its constituents and the properties of a bonded structure. Some of the favourable characteristics of Glare are its fatigue, impact and fire resistance...

Timber joints that have been preloaded for 2 to 8 years have been short term tested in accordance with EN 26891. The applied load levels varied between 30% and 50% of the average short term strength. The study comprised nailed, toothed-plate and split-ring joints. All joints were made of spruce and loaded in tension. The test results indicated...

In this contribution numerical models are discussed for describing failure mechanisms in fibre metal laminates. Fibre metal laminates form a new class of materials which are considered for a possible application to the fuselage of future aircraft generations. The intensive experimental analyses of these materials are focused on the assessment of...

Fatigue and residual strength tests were done on doubler specimens consisting of an ARALL3 (3/2) laminate with a bonded-on fingertip doubler. The primary objective was to determine the effect of fatigue crack length on the residual strenght and delamination onset stress for this type of specimen. The specimens were precracked to variable crack...

The effect of the environment on the fatigue behaviour and residual strength of ARALL-3 has been studied using three types of specimens, varying in structural complexity. In addition to the reference ambient air condition, specimens were aged and/or fatigue loaded in hot/humid air or in sump tank fluid. Environmental fatigue loading of door...
