This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 44 papers covering recent advances in the research and construction of shallow foundations, pile foundations, and limit state design. A keynote paper by Professor Harry Poulos summarizes recent advances in the settlement of pile groups. A section of 15 papers addresses statistical applications and the use of limit state design for foundations. Another section of 25 papers on deep foundations describe a series of advances in the estimation of pile capacity and pile installation issues. The final section includes three papers that focus on advances in the estimation of settlement associated with shallow foundations.
