Design of a pile foundation involves solving the complex problem of transferring loads from the structure through the piles to the underlying soil. It involves the analysis of a structure-pile system, the analysis of a soil-pile system and the interaction of the two systems, which is highly nonlinear. Close cooperation between the structural engineers and geotechnical engineers is essential to the development of an effective design. Many factors must be considered when selecting an appropriate foundation for a hydraulic structure. Information is presented to identify the feasible foundation alternatives for a more detailed study. This coordination extends through plans and specifications, preconstruction meetings and construction. Some of the critical aspects of the design process require coordination. In this paper, a comparative study is made on the sesmic behavior of Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) of RC building with homogeneous and non-homogeneous soil conditions.


Due to the increase in population and migration of people from rural to urban areas, the land in the urban areas has been a limited resource. Therefore, in urban building construction, the underground basements have become an important component. Basement or cellar floor of a structure, which is either totally or mostly beneath the ground floor, is commonly utilized as a utility space for a structure, for example, for vehicle parking, heater framework, cooling framework, electrical dispersion framework and digital TV conveyance point. Customary basic plan strategies disregard the Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) impacts. Many investigations showed that the flexibility of the soil in and around the foundation structure should be taken into account while analyzing the structure.
