In this paper, the forced features and dynamic behaviors of stone-column composite foundation are concisely related. The characteristics of Raleigh wave method is summarized. This method is proposed in which, the stress ratio of the stone-column to the surrounding soil and the bearing capacity of the composite foundation are determined. Through the engineering cases, it is shown that, checking and evaluating the composite foundation in this method, is feasible, with high speed and low cost.
