I am used to designing the PT Slab on grade foundation with uniform interior and exterior beams. The design load on the foundation is from the stud wall and brick veneer around the perimeter of slab. The PTI slab I have designed is monolithic. Now , my question is Can I design the exterior foundations per ACI 318 with rebar and design the PTI slab on grade for minimum interior load and provide tendons only on the slab? Is there any design specification for hybrid type foundation? Please comment!!!!!!
