This book was conceived as a way to bridge the gap between the sometimes highly theoretical and technically complex world of geotechnical engineering and foundation design on one hand and the ordinary construction activities of actually building foundations and dealing with soil conditions on the other. The book is directed to building code inspectors and others who are involved in permit review and field operations with regard to constructing foundations. References to the 2006 International Building Code and the 2006 International Residential Code are provided where applicable. This publication is intended to be a guide and resource in regards to soils and foundations. It has sufficient illustrations to provide a level of understanding of the principles involved, and it has sufficient guidelines regarding when it is important to call on professional help, such as a geotechnical engineer or foundation design engineer.The book is not intended to be a textbook for engineering students, but it may serve as a broad introduction to the subject.
