Abstract

PC wall-pile barrier was known to be effective to isolate ground vibration from traffic vibration sources. Filed measurement on the traffic vibration isolation by PC wall-pile barrier from a elevated road in the Higashi-Meihan Highway was performed, and field model experiments were also conducted to identify the effectiveness of PC wall-pile barrier. Factors affecting on the performance of ground vibration isolation barrier were understood from the field model experiments. Numerical analyses on both field measurement and field model experiment were carried out to identify the effectiveness of such barrier and they could quantitatively simulate and evaluate the effectiveness of PC pile-wall barrier.

Experimental and Numerical Studies on Ground Vibration Isolation by PC Wall-Pile Barrier

New York, New York

PC wall-pile barrier was known to be effective to isolate ground vibration from traffic vibration sources. Filed measurement on the traffic vibration isolation by PC wall-pile barrier from a elevated road in the Higashi-Meihan Highway was performed, and field model experiments were also conducted to identify the effectiveness of PC wall-pile barrier. Factors affecting on the performance of ground vibration isolation barrier were understood from the field model experiments. Numerical analyses on both field measurement and field model experiment were carried out to identify the effectiveness of such barrier and they could quantitatively simulate and evaluate the effectiveness of PC pile-wall barrier.
