The paper presents the summary of five case studies related to structural failures that were caused by the change in groundwater conditions during the existence of the buildings. The failures resulted from excessive differential settlements that were caused either by reactivation of consolidation process, due to change in effective stresses, or a change in water content in the case of expansive soils.
