Abstract

Abstract The author deals with the impact of three types of phenomena on the design and immersed tunnels: (1) the occurrence of sinking or sunken ships; (2) a falling anchor; (3) a dragging anchor. The article discusses ways of calculating the effects of these phenomena, and design factors that should be considered to minimize these effects.
