Stan -

Isn't that (2)-#4 @ 48 horizontal to satisfy the minimum horizontal steel
requirement?

||I sure don't understand this discussion.
||Don't you use the soil pressure and calc. the masonry wall
||stresses? If you do, you find that reinforcement is required
||for any height of fill. On a typical basement wall we would
||normally use about #5 @16" up to about mid-ht. and #4 @16" above
||that, to the top of the wall and #4 @48" horizontal.
||
||Regardless of which Code you use, don't you have to resist the loads
||from soil pressure?
