Monopiles are the most common Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) foundations due to their simplicity in design, fabrication, and installation. However, large new-generation turbines have led to significant changes in monopile dimensions, necessitating extensive finite element analyses and ground investigations to meet design requirements. While Cone...

Europe’s historic masonry arch bridges are culturally and economically significant, but their long-term safety must be ensured. Scour effects are the most common cause of collapse, so it is necessary to carry out structural assessments to mitigate the risk and prevent potential failures. In this study, a metamodel-based method was used to...

This thesis examines the load distribution on 60 m long piles under gradual static loading, considering the POST Rotterdam high-rise building as the study project. The research employs fibre optic (FO) instrumentation on site to monitor strain changes in the piles over time and assess load transfer mechanisms. This data is integrated into a...

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...

Historical quay walls constructed in unreinforced masonry are integral elements of many cities. Originally designed as gravity retaining walls, they are nowadays often subjected to the action of traffic loads as a result of vehicles travelling on roads constructed on their backfill. This paper presents a numerical analysis procedure for carrying...

Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) is a new vibratory installation technology for tubular (mono)piles. It is characterized by the simultaneous application of low-frequency axial and high-frequency torsional vibrations, envisaged to achieve both high installation performance and reduced underwater noise emissions. The concept of GDP has been...

The expansion of the offshore wind industry in areas with high seismicity has led to engineering challenges related to the design of the offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Monopiles, i.e., tubular steel piles of large outer diameter, low aspect ratio (penetration depth over outer diameter), and relatively thin pile wall, are traditionally the...

Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) is a new technology for the vibratory installation of tubular (mono)piles. Its founding principle is that both efficient installation and low noise emission can be achieved by applying to the pile a combination of axial and torsional vibrations. Preliminary development and demonstration of the proposed technology...

The effect of temperature on the monotonic and cyclic shearing response of a soil–structure interface is of critical importance for the application of thermal-active geo-structures. To investigate this, soils and soil–concrete interfaces were comprehensively tested with a temperature-controlled direct shear device under both fixed...

This paper presents a computationally efficient model for vibratory pile installation. A semi-analytical finite element (SAFE) model for thin cylindrical shells is derived to represent the pile. The linear dynamic response of the soil medium is described by means of Green's functions via the Thin-Layer Method (TLM) coupled with Perfectly...

For offshore wind turbines (OWTs), the monopile comprises the most common type of foundation and vibratory driving is one of the main techniques for monopile installation (and decommissioning). In practice, prior to pile installation, a pile driving analysis is performed to select the appropriate installation device and the relevant settings....

The growing interest in offshore wind leads to an increasing number of wind farms planned to be constructed in the coming years. Installation of these piles often causes high underwater noise levels that harm aquatic life. State-of-the-art models have problems predicting the noise and seabed vibrations from vibratory pile driving. A significant...

The increasing global demand of renewable and clean energy has led to the exponential growth, development, and interest in the offshore wind energy industry and expansion towards earthquake-prone areas. Offshore wind turbine structures, typically supported by a tubular monopile foundation, are increasing in size to meet the increasing human...

This study presents the structural response of a Submerged Floating Tunnel (SFT) subjected to earthquake loading and other relevant static loading types. The SFT is a competitive solution for crossings of deep seas, canals and fjords, as it is submerged in water and floats at a fixed submersion depth. It is supported by its buoyancy and tethers,...

The 1st Heinenoordtunnel is an immersed tube which has been open for service in the Netherlands since 1969. Over the past 50 years, a large and increasing settlement has been measured along the tunnel alignment. The greatest value of settlement (65 mm) occurs in tunnel element 1 from 1978 to 2018. The maximum differential settlement has reached...

In the Netherlands, there is an increasing need to create residential spaces in its already crowded cities to accommodate the growing population. Constructing high-rise buildings is one way to try to solve the issue. However, high-rise buildings are sensitive to wind-induced vibrations. The accurate prediction of the dynamic response is...

Offshore wind turbines are getting larger and are being installed in ever deeper waters. This requires increasingly stronger yet affordable foundations. The Tri-Suction Pile Caisson (TSPC) is a Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) foundation concept patented by SPT Offshore that requires a smaller amount of structural steel or concrete than a...

This paper describes an MPM formulation using linear quadrilateral elements suitable for soil-structure-interaction problems. The volumetric locking and stress-oscillations are mitigated using a reduced integration technique and the Gauss integration scheme, respectively. The formulation can be used with both structured and unstructured...

Mesh based methods such as the finite element method (FEM) are the most usually used techniques for analysing soil-structure interaction problems in geotechnical engineering. Nevertheless, standard FEM is unable to simulate large deformations and contact, hindering the realistic simulation of rotational, sliding, pull-out and overturning...
