Sensitivity analysis of the early-age cracking risk in an immersed tunnel
|Issue:||Structural Concrete", 2014, n. 2, v. 15|
Engineers know only too well that early-age cracking accounts for the decrease of long-term serviceability for a majority of infrastructure. In immersed tunnels, early-age cracks may leave paths for aggressive media, which lead to deterioration and thus compromise durability. On the other hand, the cracking risk in concrete structures depends on a number of factors, such as material properties, construction methods, curing measures, etc., which make decisions complex.
