Basics of Foundation Design 

Bengt H. Fellenius

Preference :

Before a foundation design can be embarked on, the associated soil profile must be well established. The soil profile is compiled from three cornerstones of information:
• in-situ testing results, particularly continuous tests, such as the CPTU
and laboratory classification and testing of recovered soil samples
• pore pressure (piezometer) observations
• assessment of the overall site geology

Projects where construction difficulties, disputes, and litigations arise often have one thing in common:
borehole logs were thought sufficient when determining the soil profile.
