[Extract] Soil mechanics and foundation engineering go hand in hand. While there were so many new frontiers in different areas (e.g. geosynthetics, environmental geotechnics, instrumentation) related to geotechnical engineering, there have been significant advancements in the core area of foundation engineering during the past few decades. The objective of this special issue is to bring together some recent developments in foundation engineering in all fronts such as analytical studies, model tests in laboratories, and numerical modelling. There are ten papers in this special issue, covering a wide range of topics related to bearing capacity and settlements of foundations. While having the emphasis on shallow foundations, we have also included an interesting paper on piles that deals with the prediction of pile group capacity.
