Basic positions of a procedure for calculating forces in buildings subject to bed deformation induced by underground excavations are presented with, among other things, consideration of the shear stiffness of the building modeled. Examples of calculations are cited for specific structure and bed parameters with the underground excavation residing at different depths. The significance of accounting for the shear stiffness of the structure is established when evaluating the deformations and forces. The potential for use of the method is addressed for the solution of other geotechnical problems.
