In this study. the Modified Response Displacement Method(MRDM) for seismic design of underground box-type structures is proposed. Firstly, to investigate the applicability of the conventional RDM, various parametric studies are performed according to buried depth and soil conditions. Results from the conventional RDM are compared with those of time history analysis in terms of the maximum bending moment and relative displacement. The comparison shows that the velocity response spectrum and the determination method of foundation modulus which significantly influence the accuracy of RDM should be modified. Thus, the modified velocity response spectrum and the new determination method of foundation modulus are proposed under consideration of domestic conditions. In order to demonstrate the accuracy and validity of the proposed MRDM numerical analyses are performed according to different parameters such as depth of base rock, height and width of box, buried depth and soil condition. the comparison with the results of the time history analysis verifies the feasibility of the proposed MRDM for the seismic analysis.
