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?
