Rectangular Balanced Pad Foundations.

A typical rectangular balanced foundation supporting two point loads from a sensitive structure that has only a small tolerance to accommodate differential settlement is shown in Fig. 9.16. The problem has been overcome by adjusting the cantilevered ends of the base to produce a constant ground bearing pressure for the load conditions.
