I'd like to install a retrofit foundation under an existing adobe wall in order to shut down a high-rise ground-squirrel condominium. It need not be reinforced, nor high strength; ideally, it would be permeable to prevent the formation of a barrier to moisture that enters the wall from above, and to keep ground-moisture from rising by capillarity. Has anyone had any experience with designing a permeable concrete mix by using coarse and fine aggregate, but omitting intermediate sizes of aggregate? Are there handling or placement problems with such a mix? Nels Roselund Structural Engineer (Only works on buildings that are older than he is)
