Abstract:   (180 Views)

In this paper,  a numerical model  was first verified against dynamic centrifuge tests results performed on an
underground subway tunnel and then, the effect of underground structure on peak ground acceleration (PGA) at the ground
surface investigated considering linear and nonlinear behavior for the soil. The results show that in the range of natural
frequency of the system, nonlinear model shows deamplification of PGA with respected to the freefield. Whereas, linear model
shows opposite trend. Out of the range of natural frequency of the system, linear and nonlinear models predict same results and for both model, underground tunnel resulted in amplification of  low frequencies and deamplification of high frequencies with
respected to the freefield.
