Field measurement and numerical analysis of ground vibration caused by metro
This paper presents the field measurement of ground vibration at the section of Long-Yang station along the Metro line 2 in Pudong of Shanghai. With the loading data for calculation from the measurement, the ground vibration caused by metro is simulated by the finite element method (FEM). Then the characteristic of wave propagation is obtained along the ground. The influences of the embedded depth of tunnel on vibration are discussed. Finally, the main causes of the differences between calculation and measurement are analyzed.
