He use of piled raft foundations has become more popular in recent years, as the combined action of the raft and the piles can increase the bearing capacity, reduce settlement, and the piles can be arranged so as to reduce differential deflection in the r aft. Piled raft foundation is a new concept in which the total load coming from the superstructure is partly shared by the raft through contact with soil and the remaining load is shared by piles through skin friction. A piled raft foundation is economical compared to the pile foundation. Because piles do not have to penetrate the full depth of clay layer but it can be terminated at higher elevations. Such piled raft foundation undergoes more settlement than the pile foundation and less settlement than the raft foundation. In this paper the study of different parameters like size of the raft, thickness of the raft, diameter of the piles, length of piles, spacing of pilesetc ., which affect the behavior of piled raft foundation. And its interdepend ency is also reviewed for G + 20 storey building. This study is useful to decide the various parameters required in the design of piled raft foundation and suggest the suitable combination of Pile Raft Foundation
