Strip foundations

This type of foundations is used at the case of long strip loads. The requirements also are as for shallow foundations, e.g. foundations should rest on a considerably strong soil stratum.
 
Benefits using these foundations are:
 

– Cheap construction, effective usage of construction materials

– Low excavated soil volume

– No special machinery needed

– Old and reliable load distribution system

– Fast construction
 

Strip foundations could be reinforced and unreinforced. Usually unreinforced strip foundations are used for light-weight simple structures, such as fence bases, small retaining structures (<1 m). Reinforced foundations are used for residential construction usually. Reinforcement is also used in places, where soil at shallow depths is variable, uneven, for example clay turning to gravely sand.
