The subway has become the main way for people to travel nowadays. The saturated soft clay area has a large population and subway construction is the most extensively distributed. The saturated soft clay foundation will settle under the dynamic load of the subway train, which will affect the service life and structural safety. To study the settlement characteristics of soft clay under the dynamic load of the subway, a three-dimensional dynamic finite element model was established based on the finite element software Midas GTS NX, and the soft clay under the normal design speed (80 km/h) and the high-speed (120 km/h) were compared and analyzed. The research results show that the higher the train speed, the larger the lateral influence range of the surface settlement trough, but the settlement decreases with the increase of the subway running speed. The settlement of the subway line after one year of operation is about 45mm, and the settlement after 20 years is about 58mm. The growth rate of the settlement prediction curve decreases gradually, and the settlement increment is very small for a long time in the later period of operation.
