Foundation engineering has been practiced as an art, without help of science, since time immemorial up to 1920 when it had  achieved a considerable amount of refinement. It was in the earlier  1920s that a concerted effort was  made to study and understand the physical laws governing the behavior of sub surface materials, i.e..  soil from which foundations derived their  support and on whose behavior its own  behavior depends. This is the time when study of soil mechanics was started and it was in  1919 when  Karl Terzaghi, popularly known as \’father of  soil mechanics\’, made successful attempt to  explain  the phenomenon of settlement on a scientific basis.
