Test Method Title

Standard Test Method for Bearing Capacity of Soil for Static Load and Spread Footings **ASTM has discontinued this method

Reference Number

ASTM D1194

Material

Field Soil

Test Property

Bearing Capacity, Load, Settlement

Description of Test

This test method is used to estimate the bearing capacity of a soil under field loading conditions for a specific loading plate and depth of embedment. The bearing capacity of a soil is not simply a soil strength parameter, but it also depends on the magnitude and distribution of the load, dimension, and geometry of the loading plate and depth of embedment (or elevation of testing). This bearing capacity can be used in soil investigations and for the design of foundations.
