Based on the shield construction of Changsha metro line 1 that crossing the Beijing-Guangzhou railway, using numerical software MIDAS GTS for simulation calculation, analyzing strata displacement caused by the subway shield tunnel drive and the influence on deformation because of the existence of pile foundation. The results show that shield tunnel construction loads to effect that the top sinks while bottom hunch-up. And reinforcing railway with method lifting lintel through vertical and horizontal can effectively weaken the effect and can be conducive to the stability of the soil.

Keywords: Numerical simulation; Shield driven; vertical and horizontal lifting beam; horizontal displacement; settlement; axial force of pile shaft
