EMBANKMENT VIBRATION CAUSED BY RUNNING TRAINS ON SHINKANSEN

The vibration of embankments caused by passage of the high-speed Shinkansen trains has been measured. The amplitude and frequency of earth pressure at each point were determined. The amplitude of the vertical vibration is predominant; the frequency of the horizontal vibration is the major element. The propagation of these vibrations is described.
