The foundation of a building form a base of the structure taking in all the loads whether live load or dead load, etc.& dissipating it into the ground below, thus they are of utmost importance in account for the stability & the life of the structure to be constructed. It includes the soil & rock of earth's crust & any special part of structure that serves to transmit the load into the rock or soil. Apart from this, the analysis of the foundation also leads to making of economical designs & foresee any type of difficulties ahead of the construction by the use of various site exploration techniques.
