Safe and Effective Way to Using Urban Sites of Ground Fracture
Speaking of the existence ground fracture disaster's city, have to ensure the safety of various types of civil engineering structures, and also be effective to use city land, this is the problem which need civil engineers to research and solves. With Xi'an ground fracture sites as the background to discuss this issue, from the vulnerability classification of urban land, the building importance rating, structural safety performance research so on, propose several methods of the ground fracture field can be effectively to use, final several good cases are given through the investigation and analysis. These methods are: In the ground cracking or possible cracking sites, with urban and community plan, can consider the layout of a city square and green space; unimportant temporary buildings can be built in the main deformation zone of the ground fractures; For the ground fracture activity tends to be stable, or to be in the sleep, the safety of multistoried buildings crossing fractures can be met; Determining the important building's minimum required secure distance, needs through the structure safety performance analysis and the research.
