Article Preview

In high seismic intensity area, strong seismic motion may cause the ruin of highway tunnel, especially the tunnel portal which is the weak links for anti-seismic fortifying. Based on soil-structure interaction model, 3D seismic responses of tunnel portal, in combination with the Menglian tunnel engineering on the Bao-Teng Highway in Yunnan, were performed by using viscous-spring artificial boundary and time history analysis method. The anti-seismic fortified length of tunnel portal to the effects of dynamic and crack property was studied. The results show that the acceleration of lining gradually decreases with the lining extends to the tunnel body under the high-intensity seismic load. Along the axial direction of the tunnel, the crack from the portal 50m is not obvious. The results provide references for the tunnel anti-seismic design.
