Stress Analysis of Underground Arch Structure


Article Preview

To research the safety of an underground defense project and the impact to other buildings, applying basic mechanics principles, established two types of mathematical model for arch about the project, and analyzed stress in different directions of ground arch structure. The data shows that the results were very different in different mathematical models, and mathematical models should be considered as close to actual stress situation in structural analysis. In the structural analysis involved soil, spatial finite element model is more accurate and reasonable than truss finite element model.
