In this paper concept of soil structure interaction was introduced and methods involved in SSI were discussed. SSI evaluate the collective response of the structure, the foundation, and the soil underlying and surrounding the foundation to a specified ground motion. Furthermore study based on parameter on SSI behaviour by various scholar is tabulated. Brief summary of all the terms involved in study are enlisted. Various structures like Dam, soil embankment and waste landfill is affected by SSI so its effect is also examined.
