Abstract

In this paper, a reliability-based durability design method for shield tunnels in a marine environment is introduced. In this context, a method for integration of the coupling effects of chlorides and hydrostatic pressure into reliability-based durability design of shield tunnels in a marine environment is proposed. By using the proposed method, material parameters of RC segmental linings can be determined. The target reliability-based durability design level shall be satisfied during structural lifetime.
