A waffle slab foundation is an above-ground type of foundation used to provide load-bearing capacity in expansive, rocky or hydro collapsible soils. The foundation is created by placing a series of single-use plastic forms set directly on the ground to create a grid of ribs, then pouring a post tensioned or rebar concrete slab, usually 4 to 8 inches thick. Sometimes, expanded polystyrene blocks are used instead of plastic forms, to prevent air spaces under the slab. The completed slab then sits on the ground, bearing on the ribs created between the forms. The void areas underneath the slab allow for soil movement.
The concrete strength will vary depending on soil test results and what the engineer has specified, 20Mpa and 25Mpa are the most commonly used concrete strength.
The waffle slab Canberra foundation is very stiff, with strength to resist differential swelling as a result from landscaping, surface drainage, or flooding from any source.
