Results of analyses of the interaction between structural foundations and supporting soil can be used to design foundations and analyse soil deformation. The book describes the elasticity aspects of soil-foundation interaction concentrating upon advances in theoretical and experimental research. Methods of soil-foundation interaction analysis are introduced in the following chapters: (1) introduction to soil-foundation interaction problems, (2) idealized soil response models for the analysis of soil-foundation interaction, (3) plane-strain analysis of an infinite plate and an infinitely long beam, (4) the analysis of beams of finite length, (5) axisymmetric three-dimensional problem of an infinite plate, (6) analysis of finite plates, and (7) the determination of soil parameters, experimental investigations and field studies.
