Deep Footing Design Excel Sheet Based on ACI 318-14


The shallow foundations are used in case of small buildings or structures, which carry lesser loads, and hence the loads are dissipated into the soil mass at much lower depth. However when we are considering large structures, which carry heavy loads, the loads are dissipated at greater depths where usually the soil bearing capacity is quite high. 

One guideline of differentiating between the shallow and deep foundations is that in case of the deep foundations the depth of foundations is more than the dimension of the structure (usually the width is considered as the dimension).
