Abstract

A framework is developed in this article to predict the nonstationary random ground vibrations induced by high-speed trains, by combining the pseudo-excitation method with the two-and-a-half-dimensional finite element method. This development contains two steps. First, the power spectral density of the wheel–rail dynamic force is accurately obtained through the combination of the pseudo-excitation method and a vehicle–slab-track–ground theoretical model. Second, the nonstationary random ground vibrations are efficiently solved by combining the pseudo-excitation method and the two-and-a-half-dimensional finite element method, where the power spectral density of the wheel–rail dynamic force obtained in the former step is used to constitute the pseudo-loads. In the numerical examples, the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed approach are validated through the comparison to the fast three-dimensional random method for train–track–soil system developed previously. The results show that the proposed approach can predict the train-induced random ground vibrations with sufficient accuracy and has three-to-five times increase in efficiency in comparison to the fast three-dimensional random method.
