A new numerical method for large-sized buildings seismic resistance modeling is
proposed. It assumes various factors: contact interaction with soil, gravity field, ground nonhomogeneity
and earthquake hypocenter location. Deep and shallow earthquakes modeling
methods are proposed additionally. It is shown that the location of the seismic source has
different effects on the behavior of different types of structures during earthquakes.
Keywords: earthquake modeling; new numerical method.
