In this research, model tests for in-situ Top-Base Foundation are carried out in other to investigate the load delivering mechanism and the incremental effect of bearing capacity. According to the result of model tests, the load-settlement curves of both in-situ Top-Base(In-situ TBF) and Precast Top-Base Foundation(PC-TBF) showed similar results in term of the ground movement and effect of bearing capacity. Also, the range of vertical stresses delivered into ground was decreased with Top-Base method regarding other types foundations.
