Title:
Probability-Based Durability Design for the Western Scheldt Tunnel 
Abstract:
Developed in an European Brite-Euram research project, a new service life design concept for reinforced concrete structures has been established. This new concept allows the design of reinforced concrete structures for a defined lifetime related to limit state formulations. The result of the durability design is a limit state-based fallure probability of the structure. This new design approach has been used for abored tunnel construction in The Netherlands (the Westerscheide project). The whol...    »
