Objectives of Foundation Investigations.

The objectives of foundation investigations are to determine the stratigraphy and nature of subsurface materials and their expected behavior under structure loadings and to permit savings in design and construction costs. The investigation is expected to re- veal adverse subsurface conditions that could lead to construction difficulties, excessive maintenance, or possible failure of the structure. The scope of investigations depends on the nature and complexity of sub-surface materials and the size, requirements for, and cost of the structure.
