This should be a pre-requisite for many organisations when sourcing bearings.
As the figure 9 shows the final bearing capacity of square foundation is 45% more than circular one when sand layer is less thick contrary to foundation dimention (H/D = 3.05) as though in sand layer of more thickness (H/D = 3.05) the final bearing capacity of square foundation is 40% less.
I reported "unable" and was immediately vectored off the final bearing and given a climb to 2,000 feet.
The flight lead was running out of ideas, so beseeched the LSO to find them, adding that his best guess was that his section was in a left-hand turn approaching final bearing.
