Identifying key variables that influence crack formation in buried concrete sewer pipes and impact their structural integrity is crucial for evaluating the leakage and collapse vulnerability of these underground structures. The present study performs a comprehensive global sensitivity analysis for these critical pipe responses considering various uncertainties associated with material properties and loading. A high-fidelity three-dimensional nonlinear Finite Element (FE) model of a typical pipe is developed and used to capture pipe behavior. Considering the significantly high computational demand of the generated FE model, a surrogate model using Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) is developed to accurately approximate input-output relationships in this high-dimensional problem. Significant variables are subsequently determined via a global sensitivity analysis based on Sobol’s theorem through the application of Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation to the trained BART model. Results indicate that concrete and backfill soil properties and variables associated with truckloads contribute significantly to the variation of key pipe responses, thereby affecting the likelihood of leakage and collapse. Findings of this study can benefit the design and management of sewer pipes in large wastewater networks and significantly reduce the complexity of assessing the reliability of sewer pipes.
