Waqar-islamabad

Answer
Dear Waqar

These parameters like bearing capacity and Spt are related to eachother by a definition for each type of soil. Atterberg limits are PL , LL  but they are not explicitely related to SPT or Bearing Capacity. What you need for your own construction is the bearing capacity which can be calculated using the spt. After all you need a geotechnical consulting engineer to help you in these mtters.
