Sometimes our infrastructures need to cross water. Immersed tunnels that sit on the seabed are widely used; more than 100 have been built.
Submerged floating tunnels have never been built, at least not for car use. Similar to bridges, submerged floating tunnels span the water. Submerged floating tunnels may be supported between landfalls, either by tension legs or pontoons.
The main scope of this working party is to concisely describe the most important merits of these sea tunnels, give relevant references to important literature, describe important design premises, and provide guidance on potential improvements.
