The interaction mechanism, between soil and U-shaped Subway tunnel, is studied by numerical simulation in the environment of ground fissures. The Subway Line 2 through the ground fissures in Xi’an. The analysis results show that the soil mass influenced by the relative displacement and the vertical displacement gradually increases with the relative displacement increasing of ground fissures movement. The deformation area of tunnel lies in the two sides of presupposed ground fissure, and the area enlarge with vertical relative displacement increasing. The tunnel structure damages at the ground fissures when the relative displacement reaches to 100mm. The footwall part is in tension and the hanging wall part is under pressure on the top of tunnel structure at the ground fissure. The footwall part is under pressure and the hanging wall part is in tension on the bottom of tunnel structure at the ground fissure. In the practical projects, the sectional type tunnel should be employed when the Subway tunnel through the ground fissures.
