Minutes of the Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Volume , Issue , 1 Jan A deep foundation derives its support from competent strata at significant depths below the surface or, alternatively, has a depth-to-diameter ratio greater than 4. A deep foundation is used in lieu of a shallow foundation when adequate bearing capacity or tolerable settlements cannot be obtained with a . British Electricity International, in Station Planning and Design (Third Edition), Isolated column foundations. Any columns may be founded on a pad foundation, provided that the size of pad required to spread the concentrated column loading is compatible with the allowable bearing pressure under that foundation. However, pads are only used where they are shown to be economical in. Soils and Foundations Chapter 3 Bangladesh National Building Code 6‐ ALLOWABLE BEARING CAPACITY: The maximum net average pressure of loading that the soil will safely carry with a factor of safety considering risk of shear failure and the settlement of foundation.

Bearing Capacity and Foundations: Shallow and Deep: /ch Foundations are structural elements that transmit loads from structures to the underlying soil. The choice of the appropriate type of foundation is governed. Ultimate bearing capacity (q f) is the theoretical maximum pressure which can be supported without failure; allowable bearing capacity (q a) is the ultimate bearing capacity divided by a factor of safety. Sometimes, on soft soil sites, large settlements may occur under loaded foundations without actual shear failure occurring; in such cases.
