A foundation is defined as the supporting base of a structure which forms the interface across which the loads are transmitted to the underlying soil or rock. In most cases foundations in civil engineering are constructed of plain or reinforced concrete, notable exceptions being roads, embankments and dams.
Foundations are classified according to the depth of founding, D (depth of base of foundation below ground level) compared to the width of the foundation, B.
Shallow foundations: are placed at shallow depths i.e. D B or where D is less than about 3m (i.e. within reach of normal excavation plant).
Deep foundations: are placed at greater depths i.e. D3m or DB.
Pile foundations: transmit the loads to greater depths through steel or reinforced concrete columns (see separate note set)
