Portuguese translation:Pisos sobre fundação de superfície
Explanation:
Several seaches at Google glossaries indicated that "Slab-on-grade is a type of foundation in which the lowest floor of the house is formed by a concrete slab that sits directly on the ground. The slab may be supported by independent
footings or integral grade beams". You can find several similar explanations by yourself.
"Screeding" as I understand means leveling and smoothing. Therefore, I would translate as follows:
"Método mecânico de alisamento de concreto para pisos sobre fundação de superfície."

Espero que isso se adapte ao seu contexto.

pisos de lajes elevadas


Explanation:
frase inteira:
"métodos mecânicos para fixar a altura (grossura)do concreto (cimento) para as lajes elevadas".
Pelo que entendi, é um tipo de assoalho (piso) em que as lajes (pedaços de pedras)estão acima do solo (elevadas ou inclinadas); é preciso saber a grossura do cimento que vai ficar por baixo dessas lajes. Usa-se, no seu texto, "um método mecânico para estabelecer a grossura (altura) do concreto sob as lajes elevadas do piso".
