RE: Vertical joint in Matt (raft) foundation

John,

 

     The joint should be between L/2 to L/4. L/2  would be ideal. There should be no rebar  splices at the joint if possible.

What is there to consider when placing vertical cold joints in a Matt foundation?  I am placing the cold joint in between two columns, providing a continuous keyway and keeping the surface rough. 
 
 
 
Thanks in advance for any input,
 
John
