The bearing capacity of single pile depends on the mechanical properties of the soil and the method of the device or a pile penetration. There are three methods of determining the bearing capacity of single piles: theoretical method, the dynamic method based on the results of the test pile driving and the method of static load test, which uses data obtained during loading pile static load sensing or soil. The article discusses the current methods of pile testing. The aim of this study was to compare the values of the bearing capacity of the pile by methods of static and dynamic sounding and on the theoretical method. The study showed advantages of each of the methods.
