Compilation of Plate Bearing Test Data

There are different test methods to determine a bearing capacity of different types of soils. One of them is Plate Load Test. Plate load test is found to be useful in obtaining the necessary information about the soil with particular reference to design the foundation. For Plate load test three different methods are used, but Reaction Loading Method is mostly used. In this paper compilation of last 15 year’s of Plate Bearing Test data is presented and discussed.
