Introduction
Loads from a structure are transferred to the soil through a foundation. A geotechnical
engineer must ensure that a foundation satisfies the following two stability conditions:

Site investigation
An investigation of site is essential for judging its suitability for the proposed engineering works
and for preparing adequate and economic designs. Site investigation is equally necessary
