DESIGN OF WALLS FOR GRAVITY AND TRANSVERSE LOADS
Lateral Support for Walls Walls may be subjected to both gravity and lateral loads. They must be supported laterally to restrain against displacement due to lateral loads such as wind and seismic forces. Walls may span horizontally or vertically. When spanning horizontally, lateral support to masonry walls may be provided in the form of cross-walls, columns, pilasters, counterforts, or buttresses. For walls spanning vertically, lateral support may be provided by floors, roofs, beams, or girts.
