According to the technical regulations, all types of foundation systems for high-rise buildings and civil engineering structures have to be analyzed for stability and serviceability. Analyses are based on the mechanical parameters of the soil and on the modeling of the soil–structure interaction. The analysis of the stability and the serviceability of the following foundation systems will be explained:

Spread foundations, for example, strip foundations and raft foundation

Deep foundations, for example, pile foundations

Combined foundations, for example, Combined Pile-Raft Foundations (CPRF)

Special foundations, for example, caisson foundations and well foundations
