In this paper,we established a seismic resistance and damping model to study the effects of tunnel under seismic waves.We took the entrance of Galongla Tunnel as prototype, drafted the similarity relationships of the model.Damping layers and the measuring points of shaking table model have been arranged. We carried out loading test of the shaking table. Compared with the results of finite element analysis, the damping ratio has been defined to analyze the dynamic characteristics and the effect of damping layers. We come to conclusion that damping layers have some effects and surrounding rocks can filter high frequency components of the seismic waves.
