It is advisable to use the maximum generated code force of 100% tension from
one direction, and 30% tension from the other direction.  This can be
resisted by 1 holdown.  There is no reason to use 2 holdowns.


I use the sum of T*cos45 for each load, which assumes the worst combination of the two loads, i.e. an EQ at 45d off the axis of the two walls.
