Mitigation Analysis of WIB for Low-Frequency Vibration Induced by Subway

The mitigation effect of a wave impeding barrier (WIB) for low-frequency vibration induced by subway is studied in this paper. The numerical calculation model of train, tunnel and ground is established, simplifying the train load as moving dynamic load along the tunnel, then the mitigation effect of WIB with different depth is studied. Finally, the mitigation effect of WIB, continuous wall and open trench are compared. Conclusions have been drawn. The ground vibration, especially low-frequency induced by subway loads, after WIB is set up, could be reduced more than two other kinds of mitigation measures.
