In Memoriam of Prof. Dr. Bernt Johansson. The use of high-strength steels (HSS, 460 < fy ≤ 700 MPa) and particularly very high-strength steels (VHSS, fy > 700 MPa) is limited in steel structures in civil and offshore engineering. This is due to a lack of experience in structures made of these materials and a lack of understanding of the...

Design codes and standards rely on generalised target reliability indices. It is unclear, however, whether these indices are applicable to the specific risk-profile of marine structures. In this study, target reliability indices for quay walls were derived from various risk acceptance criteria, such as economic optimisation, individual risk (IR)...

In theorie naderen veel bruggen en viaducten hun einde levensduur, maar de soep wordt niet zo heet gegeten als zij wordt opge-diend. Veel kunstwerken bezitten verborgen krachten. Toch is het nodig alle over-spanningen goed in kaart te brengen en kennis over dit onderwerp met elkaar te delen en/of op te bouwen

Façade elements are themost vulnerable parts of buildings with respect to wind loading. In this paper it is assessed to what extent wind-loaded façade elements fulfill the minimum reliability requirements as set in the Eurocodes. The reliability analysis needed for this assessment should account for the uncertainties in each of the parameters...

Full probabilistic reliability analysis may be valuable for assessing existing structures. Measures for increasing the safety level are quite costly for existing structures and may be unnecessary when such a decision is grounded on a conservative analysis for determining the structural reliability. This may be avoided by applying a more detailed...

Traffic load plays an important role not only in the design of new bridges but also in the reliability assessment of existing structures. Weigh-in-motion systems are used to collect data to determine traffic loads. In this paper, the potential of hybrid nonparametric Bayesian networks (BNs) is demonstrated for modeling the complex data measured...

In the northern part of the Netherlands over de last decades shallow earthquakes are induced due to large scale gas extraction from the Groningen gas field. Earthquakes occur due to the compaction of the reservoir rock, which leads to subsidence at surface and strain build-up in the reservoir rock and existing faults. The induced earthquakes...

In the coming years numerous existing traffic bridges in cities are subject to re-evaluation. In this paper a new probabilistic traffic load model for short-span bridges is proposed. As an example, site-specific weigh-in-motion data from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is included in the model. The method proposed in this paper allows for a very...

For the assessment of the in situ compressive strength in structures and precast concrete components EN 13791 applies. Among others, this standard may be adopted when doubt arises about the compressive strength in the structure. However, for assessing the structural safety of existing structures of many years of age, the method given in EN 13791...

In contrast to the design of new structures, the assessment of existing structures often relies on the subjective judgement of the investigating engineer. An objective verification format for existing structures based on alternative partial factors is however feasible, enabling a rather simple and straightforward, but objective and coherent...

The Eurocodes currently do not provide a coherent, straightforward framework for the semi-probabilistic design of temporary structures. Besides the need for suitable target reliability levels, a coherent definition of partial factors is needed in order to adjust them according to the chosen target reliability level and the intended reference...

Voor de bepaling van het dwarskrachtdraagvermogen van constructies is de betonsterkte één van de bepalende parameters. Die neemt onder invloed van doorgaande hydratatie in de tijd sterk toe. Bij de beoordeling van kunstwerken kan gebruik worden gemaakt van de feitelijk aanwezige sterkte. Hierdoor kunnen kunstwerken worden goedgekeurd die in...

The assessment of the structural safety of existing bridges and viaducts becomes increasingly important in many countries due to the age of the structures and an increase in traffic loads. Many structures need to be reassessed in order to find out whether the safety requirements are met. Most existing standards, however, are developed for the...

The operating mechanisms of movable bridges are subjected to various types of fluctuating loads which may induce fatigue damage. Wind load acting on the bridge deck - when the bridge is open - is one of the important load types. A wind load model is proposed that can be used in the fatigue design verification. The model is based on wind...

Op 1 april 2012 is het nieuwe Bouwbesluit 2012 van kracht geworden en behoren nieuwe aanvragen van omgevingsvergunningen voor nieuwbouw te zijn gebaseerd op de Eurocodes. Voor beoordeling van bestaande bouw en voor verbouwprojecten moet NEN 8700 worden toegepast. Deze norm sluit aan op de Eurocodes en geeft specifieke voorschriften voor...

Modal properties of high rise buildings are mostly derived from measurements on existing buildings under dynamic random wind loading. Measured accelerometer signals are translated into values for the natural frequency and damping. In order to obtain reliable values for the modal properties, the distillation of these parameters from the measured...
