Environmental Vibration Analysis Induced by Overlapping Subways

  • Xiaoyan Lei


China is in the golden period of constructing urban mass transit. In urban subway network planning and layout, the overlapping of two or even more subway lines are inevitable. Environmental vibration induced by the overlapping of two or more subway lines doesn’t equal the sum of each one and differs greatly from that induced by a single line. Since the transport organization and the train’s operation in overlapping subways differ greatly and are quite complicated, their influence on the environmental vibration can be amplified or exceeds the environmental vibration standard.
