The capacity of the soil to allow the loads coming from the foundation is called the bearing capacity of the soil.
It is essential to know the bearing capacity of the soil before designing the foundation. Different field tests can determine it. However, standard safe bearing capacity values are available for different soil types, and these values can be assumed where test data is limited or speedy construction is required.
