A new method was established to estimate the ultimate load, which is utilized in the assessment of pile test. In the present study twenty five reports of failure test piles (28.5 x 28.5 cm in dimensions, 12 m in depth and the working load was 40 ton) of Um-Alqura Mosque project were studied in according to their loading and settlement. The (mean ± SD) of the pile settlement for each load of all piles studied were determined, and the results obtained were utilized to generate the equation that correlates between the load and settlement using (4th degree polynomial fit graph). The equation obtained was applied to estimate the ultimate load for the maximum settlement (10% of the pile diameter). The estimated ultimate load (130 ton) in the present study was compared with the ultimate load (132 ton), which was determined previously using (Fellenius and Decourt presentation, 2001). The deviation between the ultimate load of the previous and the present method was (1.5%), but the present method depends on two working load, so it saves time and efforts and suitable to implement in the assessment of the test pile.
