With the previous answer, I would like to add the following.

Bearing capacity plays a major role in the foundation design of a structure. Bearing capacity (kN/sq.m) is the maximum load that the soil can take per unit area without failure, displacement, or yielding. Bearing capacity depends on the soils structure, density, permeability, porosity, and shear strength. Mostly, based on the bearing capacity, we arrive at the type and dimensions on the footing,

The tests have already been included in the answer by Vivek Patel.
