==================
Foundation Failure
==================
A foundation failure is when it is no longer able to support the full weight of the building due to movement of soil and excessive settlement. In such cases, the building may sink or may topple over altogether due to inadequate bearing capacity.

Many foundation fail just because of improper assessment of soil conditions existing to the site. In some cases the buildings are constructed on marginal land due to lack of suitable land.
