The effect of a blast explosion on a typical steel frame building is investigated by means of computer simulations. The simulations help to identify possible hot spots that may lead to local or global failure. The blast energy is transferred to the structure by means of the façade. In particular attention is paid to the modelling of the façade...

In order to study buckling of fire exposed aluminium columns, a finite element model is developed. The results of this model are verified with experiments. Based on a parametric study with the finite element model, it is concluded that the simple calculation model for flexural buckling of fire exposed aluminium columns in EN 1999-1-2 does not...

because aluminium is sensitive to elevated temperatures, considerable attention is required on the fire design of aluminium structures. In this respect, the heating of aluminium is evaluated as well as the structural response when exposed to fire. It shown that the application of advanced models in the design results in more optimal designs

Dragende constructiedelen van aluminium legeringen, zoals toegepast in bouwconstructies maar ook in schepen en offshore platforms, moeten zodanig ontworpen worden dat mensen veilig kunnen vluchten als er brand uitbreekt. Door de lage smelttemperatuur van aluminium vraagt brand de nodige aandacht in het ontwerp. Er is echter weinig onderzoek...

Material properties and mechanical response models for fire design of steel structures are based on extensive research and experience. Contrarily, the behaviour of aluminium load bearing structures exposed to fire is relatively unexplored. This article gives an overview of physical and mechanical properties at elevated temperature of frequently...

In this article, a methodology is presented by which the structural behaviour of composite steel framed building under natural fire conditions can be analysed. As a first step, a fire model is employed in order to predict the temperature development in the fire compartment. Secondly, a thermal response model is used to calculate the temperature...

Applications of aluminium have grown considerably in building and civil engineering the last decade, which is due to various aspects: light weight, durability and maintenance, use of extrusions. The paper starts with a short history of aluminium bridges and then focuses on aluminium bridges in the Netherlands. The design of 58 bridges for an...

De gunstige sterkte-gewichtsverhouding en de duurzaamheid van aluminium maken het bij uitstek geschikt als constructie-materiaal voor beweegbare (verkeers)bruggen of voor de vervanging van houten brugdekken. Voor een materiaal met een dergelijk laag eigen gewicht geldt echter dat het gevoelig is voor vermoeiing, aangezien de variabele belasting...

Traffic bridges are subjected to variable loads and should therefore be checked on fatigue. Especially low weight materials, like aluminium, are sensitive to fatigue, because the variable load is a substantial part of the total load. This paper shows the structural design of an aluminium bridge loaded by heavy traffic. The S-N curves of a welded...

Applications of aluminium have grown considerably in building and civil engineering the last decade. In building and civil engineering the increase of aluminium applications is due to various aspects like light weight, durability and maintenance, use of extrusions, and esthetics.

In het innovatieprogramma van Rijkswaterstaat is een van de onderwerpen de pilot 'De Nieuwe Waterweg'. Middels een Europese aanbesteding is aan het bedrijfsleven gevraagd om een ontwerp te maken voor een drijvende weg. TNO Bouw werkt samen met Bayards, XX architecten en DHV aan het ontwerp voor de drijvende weg. Het consor-tium werkt onder de...

Using two types of adhesively bonded aluminium joints, a TAST specimen and a specifically designed stiff double lap joint, experiments show that the (apparent) yield stress, the amount of plastic flow and the occurence of strain hardening is influenced by the surface pre-treatment used for an Al-Mg-Si aluminium alloy adherend. Grit blasted...

To accurately predict failure of adhesively bonded joints, it is necessary to distinguish between the different failure modes and failure criteria that can occur. In order to do so and to verify theoretical results with experimental results, joints must be available that exhibit these different failure modes. Therefore, a test programme has been...

Recent developments in hardware and software have allowed traditional speckle pattern. interferom.etry using photographic film to be replaced by digital video CCD cameras and sophisticated analysing software. Real-time in-situ displacement measurement of specimens under static or cyclic loads is now possible. In this paper the use of an...

The extrusion manufacturing process of aluminium allows protiles with a large variety of cross-sections. If these are thin-walled. cross-sectional instability miszht occur, which is caused by interaction of local buckling modes of connecting plate elements. To investigate this phenomenon. an extensive set of experiments is performed on uniformly...

The design of aluminium structures in building and civil engineering applications is different from designing in traditional materials. This difference is based on the physical and mechanical properties of the material and the freedom of cross-sectional shape provided by the extrusion manufacturing process. This freedom of shape is a key to...
