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 tube bridges (SFTB) have never been built. Submerged floating tube bridges are floating bridges, submerged at a defined depth below the water surface. They may be supported between landfalls, either by tension legs or pontoons. They have a closed cross section, like the one of an ordinary tunnel, but they behave like a bridge.
The main scope of this working party is to define guidelines for the design of the SFTB, based on the relevant experience
