This paper presents an application of forensic engineering methods in civil engineering problems.
Under the case study based on the failure of a tenement building from the 1930s, the authors
want to present the analyses of the influence of design and contractor errors on this situation.
These analyses were carried out using an advanced computer program - ABAQUS v.6.6. The work
was split into three parts. In the first one, only the most cracked wall was analysed as a 2D model.
Next, a 3D model of a building fragment with the floor removed was created. In the last stage, the
entire building was modelled, including all the structural walls as well as window and door
openings. In order to evaluate the percentage responsibility for the building failure, simple FA
(failure analysis) was applied. The results show that the most significant influence on the current
state resulted from subsequent modernization works and not from the piling works at the site to
the north. These simply triggered the accumulated damage in the structure.
