Tubes immersed with the full-section casting method have been widely applied in many projects. However, cracks can occur longitudinally and transversely from the interfacial region. Thus, cracking evaluation can be combined with simulation to analyze the temperature field and estimate the relationship between internal and external restraint with the safety coefficient. Herein, the initial immersed tube has less possibility of cracking; the adjacent one should be cast within 6 days to prevent cracking.
