    Default AS residential footings

    I am trying to interpret the AS for a footing say class M, Articulated masonry veneer.
    Can someone confirm that designing a stiffened raft slab where it states that maximum spacing for edge and internal beams say 4.0m means that an edge beam has to be maximum distance between centres.
    If I was pouring a 9m slab by 4m I would need to put a 2 internals beams equally spaced in the middle. Since it falls outside the 4m centre to centre.

    Thanks, the AS are not written in plain english but more like a lawyer has written them. I am waiting on a civil engineer to come and design anyway.
