Soil is a universally available natural material derived mostly from rocks and rocky minerals. As soil is a product of nature, possess an inherently variable and complex character. The bearing capacity is the most important soil property, which governs the design of foundation. Soft clay strata are often unable to bear the load transferred from the superstructure to the foundation. Bearing capacity and the settlement are the two important parameters in the field of geotechnical engineering. Civil engineering projects such as buildings, bridges, dams and roadways require detailed subsurface information as part of the design process. Bearing capacity is affected by various factors like change in level of water table, eccentric loads, inclined loads, dimensions of the footings, etc. The effect of water table on bearing capacity of soil determined by TerzaghiˇÇs method and IS Code method for rectangular footings are considered.
