I have a slab on grade building with masonry foundation walls bearing on concrete footing. The masonry walls have #4 dowels at 48" o.c.. The masonry walls will be below grade 36" for frost protection and not subject to lateral forces. The rebar is in there to just tie the masonry to the concrete footing.
My question is: Do the masonry walls have to be grouted solid or is it ok to only fill the cores that have the rebar?
