Abstract

With the expansion of urbanization scale, more and more infrastructures are being rebuilt in downtown areas. A majority of metropolises in China, however, have numerous cultural relics and historic sites. This situation has hindered redevelopment of infrastructures to some extent. As an important component in urban fabrics, metro development project can relief urban traffic pressure while causing less impact on the surface environment. In order to study the impact of urban subway construction projects and the influence of their operations on cultural and historical relics, this paper used cases of metro projects in cities of Beijing and Xi'an as examples, for following research tasks and objectives: 1) to classify cultural and historic relics, and to analyze their characteristics and protection requirements based on classification; 2) to study main influences of subway engineering to cultural relics during the underground construction process; 3) to analyze the negative effects of subway train vehicles on cultural relics during the operation process. Results showed that there are different influences of subway engineering on different types of culture relics. Land subsidence is the main factor affecting cultural relics during the construction process; while vibration generated by subway train vehicle during operation process, is the main negative effect for cultural relics and historical buildings.
