Title: RE: Foundation wall shear.

Mark,

I will use the unity equation,

         fvx       fvy
        ----- + ----- < 1
         Fvx       Fvy

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?



Thanks,
Mark Miller, P.E.
