Abstract: Shaking table test is an important method to study on the problem of the soil-structure dynamic interaction. The property of the soil container directly affects the accuracy of the result. A laminar shear container was designed for shaking table test. And a shaking table test on soil-underground structure dynamic interaction which structure lay in clay was conducted. The results of the test show that the container eliminated the boundary effect when the dynamic load was applied in only one horizontal direction. Meanwhile, the stiffness of the soil container could be changed according to the change of the model soil, which is applicable to decrease the boundary effect.

Abstract: A numerical analysis for the progressive collapse of a reinforced concrete frame caused by an explosion in this structure’s basement is presented in this paper. The whole process from the detonation of the explosive charge to the complete demolition is reproduced. The main work is focused on the role of soil in structural collapse and failure mode of structural members. The analysis is simulated using ANSYS/LS-DYNA and proposes a new simulation method which is comparatively accurate and economic.

Abstract: The progressive collapse of a multi-story building and its protective effect with aluminum foam under an explosion in its basement are numerically investigated in this paper. The three-dimensional coupling model composed of a multi-story frame structure with a basement and the surround soil is modeled using ANSYS/LS-DYNA. The progressive collapse of the entire structure under explosive impact and the protective effect of the aluminum foam are simulated using the proposed three-stage simulation method (TSSM). The result shows that, the aluminum foam as a protective layer can reduce the impact effects very well, and then can prevent progressive collapse effectively. The same model is also simulated by direct simulation method (DSM) and alternative load path method (ALPM). By comparison with the two methods, the TSSM is illustrated practical, accurate and economic for the analysis of progressive collapse.

Abstract: Much research has been directed at the progressive collapse of the over-ground structures under free air burst loading in recent years, while less work has been stressed on the progressive collapse of the underground structures, which subjected to internal blast loading. A proposed method is presented in this paper to simulate the progressive collapse of one underground reinforced concrete frame under internal blast loading, which is using LS-DYNA. The numerical results indicate that the proposed method is more accurate and timesaving, compared with alternative load path method (ALPM) and direct simulation method (DSM).

Abstract: This paper will introduce the basic methods of soil-structure dynamic interaction at home and abroad, and analysis the advantages and disadvantages of these methods. Finally, the paper will put forward opinions on the research tendency of soil-structure dynamic interaction. With the development of urbanization, the urban population, planning area and urban environment are faced with tremendous stress, so developing and utilizing the underground space becomes the concerns of many cities. In recent decades, the underground structure has been widely used in urban construction, transportation, national defense engineering, and hydraulic engineering and so on. Especially in the urban construction, with underground railway which has been seemed as the large-capacity backbone and fast public transport system has become an important issue of urban passenger traffic solution. In our country, there are still large potential in developing and utilizing the underground structure and the structure forms will become more and more complicated. China is a strong and frequent earthquake country, the earthquake-proof problems about the underground structures such as Long-span subway station has become city astigmatic engineering and the important research content on disaster prevention and mitigation. These researches can ensure the safe use of underground structures and reduce natural disasters to humankind. To the subway station and the tunnel structure, soil characteristics significantly influence the structure seismic response and destruction features. In seismic response process, the overburden of gravitational can greatly affect on the structural seismic response. The solution to the underground structure seismic problem should focus on two aspects: on one hand we should focus on the research of soil-structure dynamic interaction; on the other hand, we should deal with soil’s half-limitlessness simulation problem.
