A comprehensive study of types of foundation


Author(s): Siddharth Dev, Gian Chand and Mohd Amir Jafri

Abstract: To build any structure which can remain withstand during any calamity we need a perfect substructure which can easily and safely transfer the load to the ground and can support the superstructure. Foundation plays a very crucial role in stability of any structure. The selection and design of the foundation depends upon many factors including the soil type, nature (eccentric or concentric) and magnitude of the load over the structure. Different scientists and engineers gave many theories for computation of the bearing capacity of the soil. The bearing capacity of the soil is computed by considering the shear as well as settlement criteria whichever is less is taken into computation. Foundations are mainly classified into two types on the basis of the depth of the foundation which are as follows - Shallow foundation and Deep foundation. A lot of research works and publications dealing with these technologies have been insightful.
