Hi all, can anyone help to solve my problem? Normally, Plate load test is used to verify the site soil bearing capacity. but normally the settlement is quite small. (say 5mm of settlement while applied pressure of 350 kpa, which means, if reach a settlement of 25mm, the pressure can be 1000 kpa+, not really tally with the calculation). I also heard while the footing size is bigger, applying same pressure on top, the real settlement will be bigger. Can anyone share with me the relevant reference book? Many thanks.
