    Data on the performance of full scale foundations of structures under static loading has permitted the correction of many soil testing techniques and the development of reliable procedures of analysis and of forecast which otherwise would not have been possible. The need for similar full scale data concerning the effect of dynamic loads on engine foundations is equally great, but very little has been published so far. The difficulties presented by the problem of obtaining relevant and reliable information on the resonance characteristics of engine foundations are reviewed; the scant data obtained so far is tabulated and analyzed; proposals are advanced, as a basis for discussion, concerning the information needed and the manner of recording it.
