Foundation wall shear.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am looking at designing a foundation / basement wall that will be
 loaded with shear in both the in plane direction (using it as a 
shear wall) and in the out of plane direction (from the soil pressure).
  I can calculate the shear load / stress in both directions, but how do I
resolve these because they could act simultaneously?

Am I thinking of this right, or am I making this too hard?
