One of the basic roles of foundations is to safely transfer loads from the structure to the subsoil in a controlled manner. Often a key parameter in deciding whether the foundation was designed correctly is the value of settlement of the building and the ground around it. This paper attempts to numerically reproduce the measured settlement of a high-rise building using geotechnical parameters already available. For this purpose, numerical calculations were carried out using two constitutive soil models: the elastic-perfectly plastic model with Mohr-Coulomb plastic criteria (MC) model and the Hardening Soil (HS) model. The resulting settlement values were compared with surveying measurements taken during and after the building’s construction. In the summary the results obtained with the use of different constitutive models, the calculation process and the adopted soil parameters are analysed and discussed.
