The characteristical values of bearing capacity of silty soil are determined on different basis in Binzhou area, which causes a great difference in actual work. Based on engineering practices, most original data are counted and calculated for standard penetration test, soil test and double bridge CPT (cone penetration test). The result shows that the bearing capacity is more accurate as concluded by in-situ test data, and also can provide a more helpful method for foundation design, which will play an active role in undertaking the specific engineering investigation work and maintaing the summary of regional emperical values.

Keywords: Binzhou area, characteristic values of bearing capacity, in-situt test, silty soil.
