The correct choice is (c) Static formulas

The best explanation: To determine Static formulas, the samples of soils through which piles are to be driven are tested in the laboratory and properties of different soils are studied in detail. These results from the laboratory tests are then used to determine the bearing capacity of a pile of a given length, shape and size.
