Difference between Foundation and Footing

Foundations are broadly classified as : 
  • Shallow Foundations 
  • Deep Foundations
The term footing is used in conjunction with shallow foundations commonly. A footing is a foundation unit constructed in brick work, masonry or concrete under the base of a wall or a column for the purpose of distributing the load over a large area. A footing or a shallow foundation is placed immediately below the lowest part of the Superstructure supported by it. Some examples of footings are:
  • Spread footings for columns
  • Spread footings for walls
  • Combined footings for columns and walls
  • Strap footing
  • Pile foundation
  • Stages in forming vibro-expanded piles
  • Well foundation
  • Coffer dams

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
