Abstract
We analyze the case of a building that collapsed in a multifamily complex of Tlalpan borough in Mexico City during the 19 September 2017 Central Mexico earthquake. Despite having similar materials and similar structural and geometric properties, this was the only building that collapsed in the complex. A structural analysis of the building and a study of the soils’ predominant periods indicated that resonance effects, if any, would not be significant. However, phenomena related to the anomalou...
