Geotechnical practice deals with designing foundations and earth structures. Structure – Foundation – Grou nd interaction is a unique field or topic that concerns both structural and geotechnical engineers. Most geotechnical problems are very sensitive to foundation geometry (length, diameter, spacing), flexural stiffness etc. Even basic parameters such as bearing capacity of shallow foundations, ultimate axial and lateral load capacities of deep/pile foundations, are influenced by the foundation characteristics. More importantly, the serviceability criterion can be satisfied only by proper and rational estimates of structure – found ation – ground interactions. The paper summarizes modelling approaches for foundation – ground interactions, a leaning instability approach for tall structures, and analysis of geosynthetic-reinforced foundation beds.
