Functional resilience evaluation of road tunnels through stochastic event simulation and data analysis
Resilience of tunnels can have significant impact on the efficiency of the entire transportation network. The ability to assess resilience of tunnels accurately is important for tunnel owners and stakeholders when they evaluate the cost-benefit of the investment made and the monetary value of future maintenance and upgrade activities. In this thesis, a simple and direct measurement metric for tunnel functionality was proposed with the focus on the usage of road tunnels. An ideal data collection framework for tunnels was proposed to support the calculation of tunnel functionality, as well as ...
