Speech Title: Recent progress on seismic analysis and mitigation control for long tunnels

Abstract: This presentation focuses on current progress on seismic analysis methods for underground structures, including several simplified models for seismic design, and analytical solutions for longitudinal responses of long tunnels. Based on the proposed multi-mass-spring-beam model, a simplified method is also developed for the longitudinal seismic design of long tunnels. A multiscale method is developed for the large-scale seismic analysis of underground structures. A multi-point shaking table test method is proposed for underground structures subjected to non-uniform excitations. Finally, seismic mitigation methods for critical joints were also introduced.

Speech Title: Seismic performances and running safety analysis of train-bridge coupled system

Abstract: The high-speed railway network will inevitably cross the active earthquake fault zone, and the running safety of high-speed train is threatened by earthquakes. The safety prevention and control of high-speed railway only focuses on the safety of bridge structure, and fails to consider the safety of train-bridge system as a comprehensive whole. This study established a simulation platform of train-track-bridge system under earthquake, carried out the running safety shaking table test, and put forward the running safety suggestions of high-speed railway under near fault earthquakes. As currently relevant regulations on the seismic running safety of high-speed train on bridges are not yet mature. This study provides important theoretical basis and technical support for the construction of high-speed railway in earthquake areas.

Speech Title: Research and Application of the Theory and Key Technology of Deformation Control of Subsea Immersed Tunnel Foundation

Abstract: This project is based on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge immersed tunnel project. In view of the difficulties in the calculation and control of the settlement deformation of the foundation of the submarine immersed tunnel, through theoretical analysis, numerical simulation, experimental research and engineering verification, a systematic study has been carried out, and an index system for the critical unloading ratio and strong rebound unloading ratio of the soft soil in the submarine deep groove has been created. This project has revealed the variation law of soil bearing deformation and loading, which provides a theoretical basis and method for studying the deformation characteristics of seabed deep groove soft soil foundation. The project has established the SANICLAY three-dimensional constitutive model of the seabed soft soil anisotropy and structure, revealed the evolution law of the plastic potential surface and yield surface under different stress paths, and improved the accuracy of the numerical simulation of the interaction between the seabed soft soil foundation and the structure; In addition, the project has put forward the indexes of critical length diameter ratio and settlement reduction ratio of sand compaction pile in seabed soft soil foundation, and improved the bearing capacity formula and settlement calculation empirical formula of sand compaction pile in pile group effect. The project also established the reconstruction simulation method of random meso medium of the discrete element method of riprap, proposed the fitting formula of compactness and deformation modulus, and provided theoretical support and method for the design and construction of underwater riprap machine tools. The research results have been successfully applied to the foundation design and construction of immersed tube tunnels such as Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, Dalian Bay undersea tunnel and deep and medium passages, with significant social and economic benefits and broad application prospects.

Speech Title: Research on bearing characteristics of tubular foundation based on the lower bound method of finite element limit analysis

Abstract: In recent years, with its advantages of low cost, short construction period and relatively small disturbance to the foundation, tubular foundation has become one of the important foundation forms of offshore wind power in China. Because of the particularity of tube-soil interaction, the calculation of vertical bearing capacity of tube foundation is always a difficult problem in foundation design. In this study, centrifuge model test and the lower bound method of finite element limit analysis are used to study the vertical bearing characteristics of tubular foundation in saturated homogeneous clay foundation and sand layered soil foundation. The lower bound method of finite element limit analysis considering the friction between the cylinder and the soil is proposed, and the sensitivity of the factors such as mesh division, soil parameters and model size is analyzed, and the reliability of the program is verified. This study also verifies the correctness of the lower bound solution program by comparing with the centrifuge model test results, analyzes the influence of soil strength non-uniformity, the length diameter ratio of the tubular foundation and the friction between the tubular wall and soil on the bearing capacity of the tubular foundation, and puts forward a formula for calculating the vertical bearing capacity of the tubular foundation considering the above factors comprehensively. In addition, this study studied the influence of the relative thickness of soil layer, the strength of clay layer, the internal friction angle of sand layer, and the upper hard and lower soft and upper soft and lower hard conditions in layered clay foundation on the vertical bearing capacity of tube foundation.

Title: Urban Flex-route Transit and Its Optimization Problems

Abstract: In the past decades, the rapid growth of car ownership and the gradually increased level of motorization have resulted in the urban traffic congestion in China. China has already entered a period of accelerated development of urbanization, which results in more sparse suburban and rural residential districts. The conventional fixed-route, fixed-schedule transit operation mode is not favored, and transit divisions have to spend more money in developing transit systems to reach the similar level of service in these low demand areas. Thus, developing flexible transit services, especially the flex-route transit service, is an effective way to provide attractive transport services, ease urban traffic congestion problem. This report use the title with ‘Urban Flex-route Transit and Its Optimization Problems’ to study on the problem about the operating characteristics of flex-route systems, the operational strategy of how to select dynamic station, the scheduling problem of flex-route services, and the fare problem in flex-route transit services. Hope that the personal viewpoints of this report can trigger further discussions in this area.
