Research on the Earthquake Dynamic Responses of Tunnel under Changing Tunnel Lining Rigidity
With the increasing of the quantity of the tunnel, more and more attentions have been paid to the tunnel destruction induced by earthquake. Based on the software of finite element, the finite element model for deeply buried tunnel have been set up; and the responses about different rigidity of tunnel lining under seismic dynamic load has been analyzed by using elastic finite element theory. The conclusions have been drawn that the change of seismic responses by increasing rigidity of tunnel lining is unobvious, and the method using increasing rigidity of tunnel lining to reduce the seismic responses of tunnel is uneconomical.
