Abstract: An analytical procedure is presented for determining groundborne vibrations in buildings due to subway trains. The procedure involves a finite element idealization of the subway-soil-structure interaction problem, using an analytical model for the train loading spectrum at the tunnel invert. Both direct fixation and floating slab track support systems are considered. The train model is verified using the measurements of rail velocities. The proposed procedure is applied to the case of a four-storey podium block enclosing twin double-box subways within the confines of its ribbed wall foundations. The severity of velocity response levels of the building, in relation to vibration standards, is also considered.
