Are there any design guidelines and/or examples of how to calculate the capacity of a stake (rebar or 2x4) driven into the ground a few feet to support a knee brace for formwork windload? I'm sure if we ran an AllPile analysis, the capacity will be quite low, but in reality, it's pretty reasonable.
