The selection of the type of foundation depends upon:

  1. The type of structure

  2. The magnitude of loads

  3. Bearing capacity of soil

  4. Height of water table and may be some other factors too.

Raft footing or isolated footings are relatively more common but combined footings are also used abundantly.
