A Study on the Safety Criteria for Dike and Slope Exposed to Vibration

Article Preview

Problems and flaws of existing safety criteria for vibration are reviewed. A simple consideration of particle vibration velocity cannot fully reflect the inherent law of effects of explosion earthquake on structures. Sometimes the occurrence of explosions exceeding the standard velocity for safety will not necessarily cause damage to structures and those below the standard velocity for safety may destroy structures. For this reason, the free vibration frequency of structures and the safety margin of the structure should be considered. Based on safe, practical and convenient conditions, that in respect of safety criteria for dike and slope exposed to vibration, two indicators, i.e., stability factor of dike and slope and vibration velocity of particle, can be used to determine the effect of vibration on them is proposed. That is to say, pseudo-static method is adopted to make vibration inertia force equivalent to a static force on slope bars and then strength reduction method or limit equilibrium method is used to calculate the safety factor, which can directly evaluate the stability of slope. In combination with the particle vibration velocity given in specifications, the safety of dike and slope can be determined. Lastly, specific engineering cases are used to validate the rationality of this criterion. This method can serve as a reference for similar projects
