I'd use the square-root of the sum of the squares (Vector sum)

Subject: Foundation wall shear.

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?
