Abstract—Pile foundation is a system used to provide the stability of the structures, this is by transferring the structures reactions through the weak soil layers to the hard strata [1]. The piles may transfer the structure reaction by the friction between the pile and soil layers or the bearing between the pile and the hard soil strata or it may be a combination between the skin friction and end bearing. The compression pile capacity is one of the important aspects of any pile. During the design stage the pile capacity should be calculated accurately to provide a good estimation of the proposed pile foundation system. The common way used to estimate the pile compression capacity is to use the historical theoretical equations. In this research a numerical model of the pile will be modeled by using PLAXIS 2D, this is to estimate the pile compression capacity “the numerical pile capacity”. This capacity will be compared with the actual pile compression capacity based on the static load test results. 
