Abstract: ▪ The aim of the study is to evaluate the structural robustness of the prototype of the submerged tunnel proposed within the Sino-Italian joint laboratory of Archimedes Bridge (SIJLAB), when it is subjected to unexpected events like internal explosions (Fig. 1) or impact with external boats.
▪ Robustness is here defined as the ability of a structure to withstand an exceptional event like an explosion or impact, without incurring into damages to an extent disproportionate to the original cause.
