Through analyzing and summarizing the types of shield tunnel segment failure and the relevant causes of the accident, Fuzzy Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) was employed to study the failure risk of segment and the Fuzzy Fault Tree system model of segment and segment-related systems were established. The potential failure modes of risk accidents and their influencing factors were discussed through qualitative and quantitative analysis. With its application on practical project, some effective control measures were proposed. This research could be valuable reference for the design, construction and control of shield tunnel segments.
