Good day. I'm going to design a building with 6ft cantilevered foundation wall supported by cast in place piles. Foundation wall will support wood studwall. Loads are not going to be huge (building is 40ft wide). I'm wondering how to approach wall and wall-to-pile connection design. I assume piles will be spaced at around 16ft on centre. I was planning to design wall to take out of plane moment due to wind and axial due to dead/snow load. One concern is that wall is not fully supported at the base and now there will be warping/torsional distortion mid-way between piles due to combined wind and axial forces. How do I account for it in my design? Appreciate any comments. Thanks
