Natural draft cooling tower foundation is subjected to huge horizontal load mainly due to wind. I need to design the pile foundation for the same .Can I take passive resistance developed in pile cap from back fill soil to counter the huge horizontal force developed mainly from wind. Raker pile is not possible due to specification restriction . It will be of help if I get a response.
