Consequently, there are generally uncertainties associated with building damage predictions. This paper presents a probabilistic numerical methodology to investigate the effect of uncertainties for the damage prediction of masonry buildings due to tunnelling-induced settlement. The methodology is employed to provide a Class C1 prediction for a previously documented case history. The results demonstrate the uncertainties that have a significant influence in terms of the building response prediction and, furthermore, provide a quantitative risk assessment for masonry buildings due to nearby tunnelling.||Funding Details:||European Research Council
