Has anyone had the opportunity to review the standard free standing wall designs available in some building departments? I recently reviewed the design in Fountain Valley for a 4" block wall with 8" pilasters @ 12 ft o.c.. The wall only contains horizontal steel 2-9gauge @24" o.c. and the pilasters use 4-#4 vertical bars continuous. The maximum height of the wall is 6'. The moment at the base of the pilaster is resisted as a "pole type foundation". The pilaster foundation is 3' deep and 16" wide. Running some quick numbers for seismic & wind loads it became apparent to me that the wall was not stable based on current UBC standards. I am looking for some information on how the city can put out such a design if it is not stable. Or the history of these types of designs that would explain why it is all right. If anyone could help I would appreciate it. Thanks Kirk D.
