Abstract

In the Netherlands with its many waterways, engineered structures are often made of tropical hardwoods for both freshwater and saltwater applications. The tropical hardwoods used are imported from around the world with azobé, basralocus and demerara greenheart being the most widely used. A research programme has been performed to study degradation mechanisms of these structures in terms of mechanical and biological loads, but also in terms of end-of-life wood quality for re-use. An important focus relates to the differences between durability, safety and their interrelation (service life). This is illustrated by a practical example of a fendering structure. The relation between safety and durability is illustrated by a reliability calculation of a single pile of a fending structure loaded with a collision force.
