Aren't the walls connected at the footing? As the shear wall tries to uplift, it is resisted by some trib. length of the perpendicular wall, footing, etc. The transfer mechanism would be through shear in the perpendicular footing at the intersection of the shear wall and the perpendicular wall. Even if using a working stress shear capacity of 1.1*sqrt(f'c)*1.33=65 psi or about 9,400 lbs for a single story residential footing. Now you KNOW I'm an old geezer when I reference WSD for concrete!!! The point is, I don't believe you need any special connection at the wood framed section of the wall to consider the perpendicular wall contributory to the resistance of overturning. This should also apply at corners. Regards, Bill Allen > You would have to connect the perp. wall to the V-wall adaquately to transfer > the load.
