English term or phrase:reinforcing mat
"As shown in Figures 2 and 3, a reinforcing mat 7 is first constructed, which forms part of a new foundation, extends over the whole base of building 1, and is made of posttensioned reinforced concrete. In a different embodiment not shown, reinforcing mat 7 is
made of normal (i.e. nonprestressed) reinforced concrete. To construct mat 7, ground 2 is normally excavated to a depth at least equal to the thickness of mat 7; and mat 7 is designed rigid and strong enough to absorb the stress produced by eccentricity of the bottom reactions and the distribution of the loads transmitted by supporting walls 4.
