  • The exterior reinforcement of the wall should be bent and penetrate the compression layer for a length greater or equal to 20 in.

  • The 4#5 at the top of the wall are recommended to avoid shrinkage cracking and to strengthen the resistance of the wall-beam mechanism.

  • It is necessary to establish the wall's support mechanism for the earth pressures since it is not advisable that they rely exclusively on the compression layer of the floor slabs. It is recommended that detail EHU020 be included in the floor plan.
