In this report a model for the ingrowth of a prosthesis in a bone will be formulated and simulated. First an overview is given of all the biological processes that are part of this healing process and what external factors can influence this process. Then a first mathematical model is presented in which the mechanical stimuli (one of the...

Correctly predicting the structural behavior of the Pioneering Spirit is vital for ensuring the structural integrity of the ship and the cargo. A detailed finite element model is used to predict the structural behavior of the Pioneering Spirit. The finite element method is based on fundamental principles in solid mechanics. However, when using...

Soil-mix walls are subsoil walls, which are constructed by in situ mixing of soil
with cement and water. The technique was initially used as a ground improvement
technique and is now being developed as construction method for walls
with a structural purpose. Currently these walls are reinforced with large steel
profiles, which...

The possibility of multi-hazards, the occurrence of two or more (natural) hazards at once or shortly after another in the same location, can lead to an increased risk of structural damage and life loss. In the Netherlands, seismically-unprepared houses are especially vulnerable to newly expected earthquakes in the region of Groningen. These...

The Groningen region, in the Netherlands, experiences earthquakes since 1986. These earthquakes are new to the region and the structures built there are not designed for it. Therefore, they pose a great risk for the historical structures and people living in the area. Most of the buildings there are built using masonry and to analyze such...

Recent tunnelling projects have received a great amount of media attention due to settlement induced damage. Due to the simplified approach of existing risk assessment methods, a new assessment system is in development, which can account for three-dimensional structural aspects of buildings. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence...

Quay structures play an important role in society. How much load these structures can withstand however is not certain. This MSc thesis contains insight into the load capacity of the old Amazonehaven and the current SIF quay structures. Both are quay structures which use a combined sheet pile wall, a reinforced concrete relieving platform, M.V....

Jacket support structures are a preferred solution for offshore wind turbines in deeper waters. Extensive knowledge exists in relation to its construction technique as well as its crucial components, but due to considerable cost pressure, continued optimization is essential for the future competitiveness of the concept in the offshore wind...

A promising possibility to reduce corrosion resistant pipeline costs is the concept of Tight Fit Pipe, which is a double wall pipe where a Corrosion Resistant Alloy liner is mechanically fitted inside a carbon steel outer pipe. The mechanical bonding of the Tight Fit Pipe is made through a thermohydraulic manufacturing process. Problem...

The complex mechanical behaviour of timber makes it hard to predict the failure modes in connections made of timber in Finite Element Models (FEM). The combination of various failure modes (brittle and ductile) , anisotropic behaviour, contact of steel elements and large deformations that can occur in a timber joint challenges the use of FEM. To...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FML) are hybrid composites, with the attempt to combine the advantages of metals and fibre reinforced plastics. Their promising properties are used locally in joining areas to reduce the structural weight. As the metal foils density, in this case a steel alloy, is much higher than the density of carbon plies, its amount...

Unconsolidated granulates exhibit complex, nonlinear behaviour when subjected to dynamic forces. The presence of granular contacts gives this type of material a relatively low stiffness and provides hysteretic energy losses. These features make unconsolidated granulates suitable for railway ballast as it provides dissipation of vibrational...

Traditionally, steel joints are calculated by the calculation rules described in the Eurocode 3: NEN-EN 1993-1-8. Effective lengths are important parameters to determine the different resistances of the components in the steel joint. Finite Element Analyses (FEA)...

For the fatigue assessment of welded structures, several design methods are described by the design codes of IIW, Eurocode3 and DNV. The relation between the stress range and cycles to failures were derived from experiments: the SN curves. With the increased accessibility of finite element software to engineers, a more flexible approach emerged:...

This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

Generalized finite element methods have proved a great potential in the mesh-independent modeling of both weak and strong discontinuities, such as the ones encountered when treating materials with inclusions or cracks. By removing the constraint of a conforming mesh, more freedom is offered to modeling exact geometries by means of splines....

Fatigue damage is a common problem in a lot of bridges with orthotropic steel decks. Frequent maintenance is required to prevent aggravation of the problems, which gives a lot of nuisance for the traffic using the bridge. This comes especially into play at large (river) crossings where not many alternatives are available. Therefore, methods are...
