I gather you're trying to say that you calculate these moments about the end
of the footing? And when you achieve your desired FOS you check MSBP and
increase the footing as necessary to meet MSBP limits? The "ROM" is related
to MSBP in that if one exceeds MSBP one technically has no ROM.  Are you
implying that the SBP adjustment is a simple ratio of width or a "start
over" with the increased footing weight etc.?
