Foundations are designed to have an adequate load capacity with limited
settlement by a geotechnical engineer, and the foundation
itself is designed structurally by a structural engineer.
The primary design concerns are settlement and bearing capacity. When considering settlement,
total settlement and differential settlement is normally considered.
Differential settlement is when one part of a foundation settles more than
another part. This can cause problems to the structure the foundation is
supporting. It is necessary that a foundation is not loaded beyond its bearing
capacity or the foundation will "fail".
