There are two silos with a distance of 10 ft. The silo diameter is B=40 ft and the foundation pressure from silo is just under 3000 psf. Two boreholes have been decided. I am advising on the depth for field investigation. It seems the site is mainly on clayey soils.
I appreciate a feedback if a depth of 40to 50 ft suffice instead of 2B = 80 ft. Thank you.
