The design procedure recently proposed by the same authors and based on a simplified FE model for underground tunnels subjected to internal explosion is extended in this work taking into account different possible positions of the explosive source inside the tunnel. The situation in which the internal explosion is preceded by fire accidents is also analyzed. The reference situation is represented by the explosive source located at the center of the tunnel cross-section. The tunnel geometry considered is that of the metro line in Brescia, Italy. It has an internal diameter of about 8.15 m and is located about 23.1 m below the surface. Six segments and a smaller key segment (6+1) make up the tunnel. The ring has an average width of about 1.5 m. Dynamic analyses were carried out in order to reproduce the blast scenario. The aim of this work is to evaluate the influence of the position of the explosive source on the tunnel dynamic response. An ultimate limit state criterion based on the eccentric ultimate flexural capacity and capable of including fire-blast interaction is adopted. An innovative layered precast tunnel segment solution made of different fiber-reinforced cementitious composites is considered.
