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. Atlanta
