Dissipative geological structures (DGS) are formed under the basement in the local zone of the ground base, the parameters of which are consistent with the width of the basement. DGS interact with the basement; they receive its pressure and transmit it depending on the initial expansion pressure at the particular soil massif points in accordance with the Coulomb-Mohr law, to the boundary shells of the arising DGS. The development of DGS main stresses occurs in them, controlling the process of pre-limit deformation of the soil basement and preparation of the limit state. The equations of the threshold state of the soil mass’ for strip and round foundation are obtained. Critical values of pressure and foundation settlement are calculated.

Keywords: strip foundation, round foundation, limit state equations, critical pressure and deformation, ground foundation, dissipative geological structures
