Re: seismic design of cut&covers

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We use "consistent deformation method" (I don't know the correct name of the
method), which require the underground box culvert able to resist a shear
deformation angle r=Vmax/Cs.
Vmax= peak velocity of ground motion
Cs= seismic shear wave velocity of soil
Recent design procedures require engineers to consider the soil-structure

Subject: seismic design of cut&covers

appreciate any info on code recommended procedures or literature

on seismic design of subways constructed by cut&cover particularly

for fill heights more than 50% of subway total height
