I am designing a single foundation (preferably a pad. The site investigation up to 15 m indicated that the ground is made of sand with some gravel. The sand is generally clean, medium grained but with some fine at top changing to coarse towards 15 m. The SPTs are generally around 30 with a range of 20 to 90 and groundwater more than 9 m deep.
Could someone let me know what foundation design issues should be taken into account for the above 40 m high pole. Comments on seismic design would also be appreciated.
