Bill, there is one flaw that I see with your reasoning. Forgeting the =
concrete foundation for one moment, the governing factor will be the =
capacity of the holddown at the connection to the shearwall. If there is =
no positive connection from the perpendicular crosswall "within" the =
shearwall by transfer, AND if the resistance to uplift is considered =
from the crosswall, then the holddown connection may not be designed =
adequately. Without the possitive connection of the crosswall above the =
foundation to the shearwall, the shearwall will uplift and the =
connection at the holddown will probably fail in the post (ie, if the =
holddown required without consideration for the crosswall is an HD7 but =
becomes an HD2 with the wall, the HD2 may fail without positive =
conneciton of the crosswall above the slab).
Unless I missed something from your post, I think you missed this one.

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=3D65 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.

Bill Allen
