Original Abstract

This contribution describes the design of cross-section dimension (tunnel lining thickness) and reinforcement design optimization of a concrete structure using the DBSA (Deterministic Based Structure Optimization) approach. The target function is defined as a multicriterial problem and will include economic and ecological aspects associated not only with the production of concrete members but also with their maintenance during utilization. From the mathematical viewpoint, the range of allowable solutions are defined by constraining conditions expressed by relations derived from equations of equilibrium (the solution of optimization calculations for a structure with a Winkler foundation using the finite element method) and the reliability conditions that apply to a reinforced concrete structure.
