Research Advances in the Interaction among Stratum-Ground Fissure-Tunnel under Subway Dynamic Loading


Article Preview

Ground fissure is a kind of serious geological disaster. There will be more unprecedented challenges during the construction of the urban subway in ground fissures-developed zone. How to ensure the long-term operation safety of the subway crossing ground fissure belts are the first problems for the subway under construction in the cities with ground fissure developed. One of the important problems is that dynamic interaction and disaster effect control among ground fissure-stratum-subway tunnel under subway dynamic loading, which is also the important problem to be solved in the engineering. This problem involves the following three aspects: (a) the determination of subway dynamic loading; (b) the structure dynamic response of subway tunnel; (c) the interaction among stratum-ground fissure-subway tunnel. According to make a comment on these researches, some issues which are necessary to carry out in this field are suggested.
