Ultimate bearing capacity is calculated by using Prandtl equation. When the footing is below the surface the ultimate bearing capacity of the soil is modified by (1 + Cd/b) where C = 2 for cohesionless soils and C= 0.3 for cohesive soils.

The Prandtl’s equation is :-

    dear Sir,
    I just want to know the procedures of obtaining the bearing capacity of soil through soil tests,(atterberg limits and sieve analysis only) that can help me in my single storery building design project. i am a civil engineering diploma student in Tanzania.
