Ground vibrations generated by high-speed trains are studied in this paper. Open trenches are included in modeling and the problem is formulated using elasticity theory. The ground is modeled by a semi-infinite domain and the embankment with finite layers and the high-speed train is simulated by moving loads. The analytical solution is obtained in frequency domain and the peak particle velocity (PPT) is then achieved for different types of open trenches with different aspect ratios and distance from the track centerline. A parametric study is then carried out and effects of different parameters including the train speed and ground properties on vibration reduction factors are investigated.
