The lowest part of a structure which transfers its load to the soil underneath is foundation. It is the component of a structure which associates it to the ground and moves loads from the structure to the ground. These are commonly viewed as either shallow or profound. The strength of a structure for the most part relies upon the performance of foundation. Its plan ought to be done appropriately, thinking about its significance. With the assistance of bearing capacity a ultimate load of soil is recognized. Two parameter which is required for the structure of shallow establishment are Bearing capacity and settlement. In the present study, different codes of practice adopted in different countries and the progress made by various researchers has been reviewed. STAAD Pro software are generally used with finite level model and its validation can be done using experimental data. Recommendations were given to simplify the soil-foundation structure interaction analysis of seismic loading. Different shaped footing for same loading condition can be compared. The best suitable and stale type of footing which can transfer load can also be determined using soil bearing capacity and by using analysis tool Staad pro. Cost analysis for different shapes and foundation can also be determined to find the economical section. From the various literature review carried out it can be concluded that STAAD Pro software can be effectively used for the comparative study on different types and shapes of footings.
