I would guess that Rw=3 would be appropriate. The '97 UBC uses R=2.2 for
cantilevered column systems in buildings and non-building structures. While
the '94 UBC doesn't show a Rw value for buildings, it does specify Rw=3 for
non-building structures. Also, Rw=3 is approximately 1.4*(R=2.2), which
puts it in the right ballpark.

Subject: Rw for cantilevered columns
What Rw (UBC 94) does people usually use for a free standing column
cantilevered from the ground on spread footings.
