Load test is the main method to identify the bearing capacity of foundation in practical engineering. However, some problems are existing in the experiment, such as the scale effect, high cost and long construction period. The newly numerical ultimate analysis can overcome the shortcomings of time-consuming, complicated operation, inaccuracy and so on, which is gradually becoming an effective calculation method in geo-technical engineering. The paper adopts increment loading method and ultimate
