Abstract

•Common configurations of segmental joint for large underwater shield tunnel are summarized.•Bending performance of segmental joint is investigated by full-scale tests.•Failure process and characteristics of segmental joint under high axial force are presented.•Comparative analysis on bending behavior from small deformation to joint failure.•Sealing waterproof could hardly promote segmental joint bending stiffness and capacity.
