Application of the partial safety factor concept for the structural design of tunnels in Germany / Anwendung des Teilsicherheitskonzepts beim Standsicherheitsnachweis von Tunneln in Deutschland
|Published in:||Geomechanics and Tunnelling, 2010, n. 1, v. 3|
The calculation and design of engineering structures in Germany has changed from a global safety factor concept to a partial safety factor concept introducing a number of partial safety factors. The report presents the current rules for transport tunnels and explains the new method of structural design and serviceability by means of a practical example.
