I have a residential, non-load bearing, 14 ft high, interior wall constructed of 2x4 studs at 16" c/c with drywall each side. The wall is not intended to carry gravity loads nor lateral loads. Is there any design criteria for this wall? I think I remember a 5 psf lateral load requirement for interior walls (perhaps from a previous edition of the UBC?)but I can find no IBC design criteria for such a wall. Please advise.
