Abstract :
The aim of this paper is to propose a method for the evaluation of tunnel safety using probabilistic risk assessment. The framework includes three criteria; personal-, societal- and economic risk. The use of personal and societal risk is becoming more and more widespread. There are however, still some difficulties in using the economic risk criterion. As a first step towards economic risk optimisation, the cost effectiveness of addition and removal of safety measures in tunnels is investigated. Finally, the application of the three proposed criteria is further discussed for some tunnelling projects currently underway in the Netherlands.
