ASTM Designation: D 1194-94
I.I This test method covers estimation of the bearing capacity of soil in place by means of field loading tests.
This test method can be used as part of a procedure for soil investigation for foundation design.
It gives information on the soil only to a depth equal to about two diameters of the bearing plate, and takes into account only part of the effect of time.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
