Abstract: Settlement values for shallow foundation in sandy soil in Al-Nasir District in Al-Najaf Al-Ashraf City under the influence of different vertical loads had been calculated by finite element method and GEO 5 Software. Research methods included field, laboratory and office works. The model had been designed to represent sandy soil with direct contact by reinforced concrete footing and the loads values was applied on this footing were 80, 100, 120, 140, 240 kPa/m2 and the maximum settlement values for shallow foundation were 5.8, 7.5, 9.5, 11.7, 24.6 mm, respectively which were acceptable for general values of settlement for shallow foundation with these applied loads.
