Axial Load Check: The weight of the wall, grouted at 24 inches on center, w2, is 69 psf.
Axial load at the bottom of Pier D, P, is determined as follows:
PTOTAL = [(300 lb/ft) + 600lb/ft)] (8.67 ft)
+ 69 psf [(4.67*)(6.67*) + (4.67*)(8.67*)]
= 7803 + 4943 = 12,746 lbs.
Axial stress due to axial load in Pier D, faD, is determined as follows:
faD = 38.9 psi < Fa = 360 psi (See Pier B for Fa)
Axial stress in Pier D stress due to the overturning of the entire wall panel, is determined as follows:
(See Pier B design):
foD = 26.0 psi < Fa = 360 psi
Combined Load Check: (Use the unity equation, see Pier B design.)
(4) Summary. The design example solution provided above has shown that the assumed wall section
is adequate to withstand the applied axial and in-plane shear loads.
