RE: 14' Tall concrete Wall

I would assume the floor slab will transfer the shear from the At-Rest side to the Passive side.  I would not design the wall to casinos connection for the shear load.

Thank you for your reply, The 14' tall wall is resiting the back fill which I assume it as fluid-equivalent of 50psf. I am in Colorado which is B seismic zone. My problem is the connection foundation wall-pier where I have a big shear force at the connection.
