I am designing a concrete block foundation for a reciprocating compressor and motor. I would normally provide reinforcing to the face of the block only but someone has suggested that reinforcement should be provided throughout the concrete volume. Can anyone tell me which is the preferred practice and if reinforcement is to be provided throughout the concrete can you provide a reference to show my boss.
