Hi,

RC wall subjected to gravity load only? How you are preventing its large in-plane stiffness not to resist lateral load?

Nonetheless, if you really can ensure a mechanism via proper detailing so that the wall carries only gravity load, then I guess the design should be similar of a column.

Regards
Arun

I think, "Design of RC Structures"  by Subramanian sir covers design of RC load bearing walls in detail.
