The purpose of this paper is to outline briefly the philosophy of structural design as applied to buildings founded on heaving soils, to indicate the possible effects of such heaving and to summarize the known methods of offsetting or minimising the results of heave. Factors relating to the selection of a suitable type and degree of treatment and the cause and acceptable degree of differential settlement are mentioned.
