Foundations may experience serious misery during an earthquake. Earthquake consequences for shallow and profound foundations are represented by planning them fundamentally to give important quality and ensure serviceability. Quality contemplations basically includes ensuring that the foundation loads stay well underneath that directed by the suitable bearing limit under seismic conditions and serviceability is ensured by outlining the substructure for the evaluated perpetual ground distortion. This paper talked about different aspects of earthquake ground motion influence on structures and furthermore how certain building qualities alter the manners by which the building reacts to the ground motion. The association of these attributes decide the general seismic response of the building: regardless of whether it is undamaged; endures minor harm; ends up unusable for quite a long time, weeks, or months; or crumples with extraordinary death toll. Clarifications of a few qualities of ground motion are trailed by portrayals of a few material, auxiliary, and building characteristics that, by communicating with ground motion, decide the building's seismic execution the degree and nature of its harm. The fundamental motivation behind the examination is to break down the seismic bearing limit of foundations and seismic weight and talk about the different issues and issue related into it. Fan Footing Soil Foundation (FPSF) technique was presented for reinforcing.
