A pile of 450 mm diameter and 10.5m length is driven in a deposit having deposit having C=0, $\phi=30^{\circ}$, $\gamma=16.5kN/m^{3}$ and $\gamma_{sat}=18.5kN/m^{3}$.

Considering critical depth to be 15 times the diameter of the pile; $N_{q}$=135, k=3.2 and $\delta$= 20°. Calculate the safe load that the pile can carry if the water table is located at a depth of 2.5 m from the ground level. Assume FOS=2.
