Blasting vibration generated from blasting excavation of subway tunnel may endanger the adjacent structures buried in strata. To guarantee their safety and stability, it is crucial to understand the spatial variation law of blasting vibration in strata. In this paper, the blasting excavation of the large cross-sectional tunnel of Wuhan Metro Line 8 is studied. Three-dimensional finite element simulation is performed using the dynamic finite element program LS-DYNA, and its validity is verified by the field monitoring data. The spatial variation law of blasting vibration in layered strata is investigated through analyzed the distribution characteristic of blasting vibration in three directions, including the direction along the axis of the large cross-sectional tunnel, the direction perpendicular to the axis of the large cross-sectional tunnel, and the direction along the depth. A prediction model for blasting vibration velocity, which considers the impact of elevation differences, is established through dimensional analysis, enabling the prediction of blasting-induced vibrations at various depths in the layered strata.
