In this paper, the authors demonstrate programmable calculations of allowable bearing capacity as per (IS: 6403-1981), settlement according to (IS 8009(part-1)-1976), design of R.C.C footing as per (IS: 456-2000) for given load, moments, soil properties using 'MATLAB'. Firstly, the historical background is presented for the determination of allowable bearing capacity of shallow foundations. Secondly, based on a variety of case histories of site investigations, including extensive bore hole data and laboratory testing, an empirical formulation is proposed for the determination of allowable bearing capacity of shallow foundations.
