Abstract
Analytical or two-dimensional (2D) numerical models used to represent soil-structure interaction tend to oversimplify the real conditions of the problem and cannot be expected to provide really reliable results. Recently, powerful and user-friendly three dimensional (3D) numerical tools have been developed. In this paper, two cases of large buildings founded on Mexico City soft clays that were analyzed with 3D models are presented.
