Hi all, this is my first post here. I was asked to inspect the CMU foundation wall in a small single-family home (I'm a licensed PE, practice structural engineering for 14 years) due to some "deterioration" in the CMU. The wall was 6 courses tall, with about 4-5 courses below grade, with 1 course below the finished crawl grade. There were large portions of wall on 3 sides of the home where the block was "mushy" at the lowest course, but seemed to be fine above the crawl space grade. The face shells could be wiped away like they were just mud, and there were areas that have to be supported on not much more than the joints. Anyone ever seen anything like this? Thanks in advance!
