Highlights of this paper: a method for calculating the ultimate bearing capacity at the tip of a pile is presented; ultimate bearing capacity is generalized for the modified Hoek–Brown criterion; perfect plasticity, isotropy, weightless rock media, without inertial forces, Meyerhof׳s hypothesis are considered; all the formulation can be programmed in a spreadsheet.
