Foundations

THE design of foundations is a matter of increasing importance for two reasons, the first being the growing economic necessity to erect buildings on sites which have hitherto emained undeveloped on account of the poor bearing value of the ground, and the second the present-day tendency to design buildings for smaller unit loads than in the past. So far as the superstructure is concerned this latter tendency is justified, not only by the fact that the loads are in most cases smaller than we have assumed them to be, but also by the advance in methods of design and improvements in the quality of materials.
