The paper summarizes the results of a numerical investigation designed to study the soil-structure interaction effects on modal parameters of three office buildings. The reinforced-concrete 4-storey, 8-storey, and 12-storey office buildings, each with additional two levels of embedded basements, represent low, medium, and high-rise structures, respectively. In order to conduct this research, detailed finite-element structure models were prepared. Soil-foundation flexibility was represented with the use of spring-based solutions, incorporating foundation springs and dashpots. The influence of diverse soil conditions (represented by their average effective profile velocities and shear moduli) on the dynamic characteristics of the analyzed three office buildings (e.g. fundamental vibration periods) was investigated and discussed.
