Research Summary of Bridge and Tunnel Construction Safety Risk Evaluation Method


Article Preview

The risk of bridge and tunnel engineering in construction stage is a main subject which must be faced by bridge and tunnel engineer. Risk evaluation can analyze the happening possibility of construction safety accident and the consequence and loss caused by the accident. The research summary of risk evaluation method of bridge and tunnel construction safety is generalized in this paper. The main methods of risk evaluation at present are extrapolated, and the quality of each method is analyzed. The word of this paper will provide favorable reference for further research on risk evaluation of construction safety of bridge and tunnel engineering.
