When dewatering in deep foundation pit, the uncertainty of the leakage point location, size, and so on in the rock-socketed underground diaphragm in deep foundation pit cause the numerical simulation and prediction of the groundwater flow field very difficult to handle. Based on the analysis of the sealing effect of the rock-socketed underground diaphragm in Xunlimen station of Wuhan subway line No. 2, a method of longitudinal translation and put together is used to deal with the leak point in diaphragm while numerical simulation calculating. The results through 3D numerical simulation by this method are very close to the results obtained from actual measurement, it shows the possibility of using the method to deal with the problems of simulation and prediction of change process of the groundwater flow field in the case of dewatering in the rock-socketed underground diaphragm while it exists leakage point; it provides an approach to solve the problem. In the meantime, the actual sealing effect of the rock-socketed underground diaphragm is analyzed and discussed. The analytical procedure discussed for the project instance can be used for reference to the similar engineerings.

More and more adjacent, complicated underground structures will run across each other with the further exploitation and utilization of underground space, and hence, the seismic ability of underground structures will be influenced by the adjacent underground structures. Focused on the subway tunnels between Hongshang Square Station and Zhongnan Road Station on Wuhan rail transit lines No. 2 and 4, the relevant models for different numbers of tunnels and different tunnel net distances are established, and the seismic responses of tunnels and site soils influenced by group cavities effect are analyzed. The results show that: 1) the lower tunnel can cut off the transmission of seismic waves, and therefore, it can play the function of shock absorption; 2) the existence of the upper tunnel weakens the constraining effect of surrounding soils on the adjacent tunnel, and as a result, the seismic ability of the adjacent tunnel will be reduced; 3) the group cavities have little effect on the fundamental period of soils and acceleration magnification effect; and 4) the shallow overlying soil has a significant effect on the seismic ability of tunnels and acceleration magnification effect of site soils.

In order to study the over-track building vibration impact induced by metro trains running in and out of the train depot, this paper combines two practical engineering techniques. First, we measure and analyze the train vibration load of a train depot in Wuhan and Ningbo, then comparatively analyze the results of the measured load results at the train depots and discuss the train vibration load characteristics in the train depot. Then, a sophisticated FEM model-building method based on weak vibration input yields an improvement, and its rationality has been verified by the measured results. Finally, a sophisticated FEM model of over-track buildings at the Wuhan train depot is established, and an analysis of the over-track building vibration response is calculated. Calculation results showed that the over-track building vibration induced by train load at high frequency is rich, its main frequency is near 40 Hz and the train vibration load determines the building vibration frequency distribution. The floor center of the building vibration level along the height direction is different, and the vertical vibration along the floor increases after decreasing, but the horizontal vibration level increases with the height. The research results can provide the basis for prediction, analysis and evaluation of the serviceability of over-track buildings. © 2016, Editorial Office of Journal of Vibration and Shock.

More and more shield tunnels will crossing each other with very short distance with the rapid development of urban rail transit construction in China. There are four tunnels crossing each other between Hongshan Square Station and Zhongnan Road Station, which are the second line and the fourth line of Wuhan rail transit. The complicated multi-tunnels were simplified as four parallel tunnels and four perpendicular tunnels with different distances according to their practical characters. Three dimensional calculation models are established and their seismic responses are analyzed, in which the following aspects are considered: amplitudes seismic waves, tunnel net distance, tunnel space position, the difference of segment stiffness and the reinforced layer between tunnels. And then, their seismic capabilities are evaluated through two aspects: structure deformation and component internal forces. The analytical results show, (1) The net distances between tunnels have little influence on tunnel seismic responses; (2) The seismic capabilities of four perpendicular tunnels is superior to that of four parallel tunnels. (3) Adjacent overlapping multi-tunnels have good seismic capabilities and can satisfy seismic requirement. The research results can provide preliminary design for relevant practical engineering in future.

There are some thorny problems such as uncertainty and instability solution produced by initial parameters when hierarchical optimization is applied to the viscoelastic cavern displacement in parameter inversion. A simple search method is used in the hierarchical optimization. The hierarchical pattern search is provided to solve these problems. A new method has some computing strategies based on least-square method, which can avoid iterative non-convergence when initial parameters are not optimally selected. Numerical results show that the hierarchical pattern search is nearly independent of the original value; and the method has high accuracy and validity for the viscoelastic cavern displacements of parameter inversion.

Buckling safety factor of the design for supporting structure of foundation pit engineering is unmeasurable in the process of construction; so the different types of monitoring projects for the different safe states of foundation pit engineering are stipulated by the JGJ120-99, which is Technical Specification for Retaining and Protection of Building Foundation Excavations (in Chinese), and the GB50497-2009, which is Technical Code for Monitoring of Building Foundation Pit Engineering (in Chinese). At same time, the safety alarming value is suggested respectively. Because of the asynchronism of monitoring data and with a view to avoid the burstiness of unsafe state of working progress of pit and demand for coping behavior of different safe states, the classifying method of safe state is suggested. In light of observed data of the different monitoring projects, the generalized stability factor is defined using the theory of fuzzy mathematics by which the destination is to estimate the safe state of work progress, and safe toplimit of the generalized stability factor is given. As a real example, the developing process of generalized stability factors for different monitoring projects are analyzed based on fuzzy calculation of observed data and the priority monitoring project of security control is pointed out.

Through the analysis of the sensitive factors of effective bending rigidity ratios of shield tunnel structure, an efficient solution method based on prototype tests is proposed for the effective bending rigidity ratios. The prototype tests on segmental lining structure of Nanjing Yangtze River Shield Tunnel and Guangzhou Zhujiang River Shiziyang Shield Tunnel are carried out. The variation of η and ξ with load conditions is deduced. The results show that under the same load conditions, when the profile is larger, η becomes smaller, and meanwhile ξ becomes larger. The value of η of staggered assembling structure is larger than that of straight assembling structure. The values of ξ vary in positive and negative bending regions, and the relationship between η and ξ becomes various when using different structural types. Furthermore, the relationship between η and ξ of the two different structural types is given, and the recommended values of η and ξ of segmental lining structure using the straight assembling and the staggered assembling are proposed for 10 m and 15 m class underwater shield tunnels.

Research purposes: Tunnel-induced pipeline damage has become a big issue, and the protection of pre-existing underground buried pipelines grows to be a public concern. Based on the impacts of metro construction on the safety of adjacent pipelines, the safety risk management standard for the existing pipelines adjacent to metro construction is studied. A systematic safety risk management system for the existing pipelines is also developed, providing supports for safety assu rance and protection of adjacent pipelines at different risk levels. Research conclusions: (1) According to the horizontal and vertical relative distances between the metro structure and the adjacent pipeline, the neighboring grade is divided into five levels (I~V); (2) To use the horizontal and vertical pipeline deformations as indicators to establish the safety control standard for the underground buried pipelines is more representative than other indicators; (3) With the deformation of the existing pipeline, usage, and its operation status taken into account, the safety risk of the tunnel-induced pipeline damage can be assessed into five different levels, namely Safe, Basic Safe, Dangerous, Basic Dangerous, and Very Dangerous. Corresponding prevention and protection measures are further proposed before and during the construction process for the adjacent pipelines according to their evaluated risk levels; (4) The proposed method is applied in one shaft foundation pit excavation project in Wuhan metro tunnel construction, and the results demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method; (5) The research conclusions can be used in the metro tunnel construction fields by providing decision supports on the construction safety management.
