In 1940 the Foundations Sectional Committee of the Institution appointed a sub- committee (C) to draft a report on the design of foundations: independent footings, combined foundations and rafts. The work on Independent Footings or Pad Foundations centrally and eccentrically loaded was comp1eted in the Spring of 1944; but as the Code of Practice Study Committee on Foundations-convened by the Institution of Civil
Engineers-had already started work, and the Council had decided to suspend the publication of Institution Reports on matters covered by the Codes of Practice, the material collected was passed to the Study Committee, and Sub-Committee C ceased to function.
