This course presents guidance for selecting and designing foundations and associated features for buildings, retaining structures, and machinery. Foundations for hydraulic structures are not included. Foundation design differs considerably from design of other elements of a structure because of the interaction between the structure and the supporting medium (soil and/or rock).

We will be covering Army Corps of Engineers document "Procedures For Foundation Design Of Buildings And Other Structures" chapters 1-4. In this chapter we will be discussing identification and classification of soil and rock, engineering properties of soil and rock, and field explorations.
