Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Since the analysis of underground structures in seismic conditions was more based on non-linear terrestrial environment and linear structure, regarding nonlinear behavior of soil and tunnel against earthquake was of paramount significance in order to achieve real responses in practice. The use of polypropylene fibers in concrete materials can help improve the performance of concrete members. In this regard, after verifying the behavioral model of fiber-reinforced concrete seen in the structure of the tunnel and using an article by Conforti et al., the nonlinear seismic analysis of the ground and the structure of the water transmission tunnel of Amirkabir Dam to Tehran refinery no. 6 was performed by a time-history method and through ABAQUS software and concrete damage plasticity model for concrete lining and mohr-coloumb model for host soil of tunnel. Simulations were performed for the fibers with percentages of 0, 0.7, 1 and 1.5. Then, compressive and tensile stresses, compressive and tensile strains, and compressive and tensile failures were obtained while tunnel lining in the mentioned conditions. Since then, normal and shear stresses and normal and shear displacements of the longitudinal joints of the tunnel were examined. Finally, this paper studied the analytical relationships that existed in the ACI 544.7R-16 regulations and the moment-force diagram for the different percentages of fibers for the joint with the maximum normal stress under earthquake records were compared.
