Dynamic Responses of RC Underground Subway Station and Soil during the Strong Earthquake
Underground subway RC structures suffered significant damage during many earthquakes, so it is important to study the seismic behavior on RC subway structure. The shaking table model test is made of the Beijing typical subway station structure. In this article, the test is introduced briefly; then, the acceleration history curves are analyzed. By the test, it is found that the interaction exits between structure and soil. Under the low intensity earthquake, the underground structure will exert a very small influence on soil and vibrates with soil; under the high intensity earthquake, the soil will exert a large thrust on the underground structure and the relative displacement exists between them. Moreover, At the bottom of the structure side wall, the peak acceleration is larger than it in soil around the place, and at the top and middle of the structure side wall, the peak accelerations are smaller than them in soil around the place; with the depth increase, decrease the peak value, the excellence frequency and its amplitude of the acceleration time history.
