If a 2m*2m square footing will be installed on a 5 m thick structural fill, how can I get the properties of the structural fill for the settlement and bearing capacity? Is there a reference having properties for different types of structural fills? If we do test in the laboratory or in the field, what kind of test should be carried out? Basically, I want to know the bearing capacity based on settlement requirement.
