Research on vibration of soils and foundations has yielded several fundamental methods for formulation of interaction problems. This paper is intended to survey the development of the current state-of-practice for design and analysis of dynamically loaded foundations. Extensive studies in this field utilize various linear mathematical models for interaction between foundations and different soil media. The effective analytical, numerical and experimental techniques and their methodologies which are well established for treating problems in dynamic soil-foundation interaction are outlined. Described techniques are categorized based upon formulation procedures and their applications. Some areas are indicated where further research is needed.
