Hey all, we all have seen recommendations like remove a foot or two underneath the proposed footing level and replace it with crushed stone bridge lift. Can someone explain me as to why we do that when we run the settlement analysis with the original soil profile. Does anyone think that the stone is heavier than the native soil and cause the settlement of the soil underneath. May be I am thinking wild. but let me know your thoughts.
