Vessel or Stack Foundation - Shallow Bedrock

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Has anyone here got experience with a foundation for a tall vessel or stack 
 e.g (standalone, not guyed) in a condition where there is fairly shallow 

I'm looking at the possibility of such a thing. Typically I use deep pier 
or pile foundation, but In this case there is assumed to be bedrock at 8 to 
 10 feet depth below ground.

I assume I could then use a "chunk" foundation bearing directly on the rock 
 in such a case, recognizing I might need a spread there to deal with the 

In that case what do I need the geotechnical to tell me?
