In my office, there's an engineer who has designed a pad foundation
(consider the column as well)
using axial load only. The foundation has been cast and now it is found that
there will be actually a big moment induced to the column due to the
loading of the ground beams. Is there any remedial options at this moment.
I am thinking of increasing the size of the footing by casting an reinforced
to the foundation to take the moment. Is this option feasible? Thanks for
any comments and advice.
