Recently, expansion of urban and social infrastructures is planned to go through the transfer of military facilities or crossing the infrastructures via underground tunnels. However, when crossing facilities such as ammunition and explosive storages, a high level of safety assessment is required to prevent an accidental explosion of ground ammunition. In this study, a case study was conducted to evaluate the effect of blasting for the construction of tunnel on the ground ammunition facilities. The design section of Sinansan train operated by the Korea Railroad Authority with agreement of the Ministry of National Defense was selected. For the purpose of this study, the vibration velocity due to explosion was predicted by using GTS-NX, a numerical analysis program. Through literature review, it was confirmed that the vibration velocity of 0.2cm/sec can be a safety evaluation standard. These safety evaluation indicators and procedures used in this study can be utilized as an index of safety evaluation in the planning of social infrastructures that cross the ammunition facilities in the future.
