Dynamic Response of Underground Structure under Vertical Earthquake Action
The research of stability of underground structures under earthquake action is one of the hot topics in Geotechnical Engineering researches .Through numerical simulation the article studies the dynamic response rules of the underground structure under vertical earthquake action. The result shows that under vertical earthquake action the vertical stress on the roof and bottom plate of underground structure and the same depth in the earth both increases, and the vertical stress on the roof and bottom plate of underground structure is much higher than that on the same depth in the earth (above two times); under vertical earthquake action the underground structure experiences greater vertical stress from time to time, and produces vertical compressive deformation, and sometimes it completely separates from the above soil layer.
