Given the problems associated with sampling cohesionless soils there is movement towards the use of high quality in-situ tests either to derive soil parameters for use in conventional design me-thods or through the use of empirical design correlations. This paper describes a field test of a model vertically loaded footing tested at a dense sand test site. The ultimate capacity and load-displacement response at working stresses are shown to be predicted reasonably accurately using simple tech-niques which use the Cone Penetration Test (CPT) cone resistance qc as an input parameter.
