Even if it’s not explicitly prohibited by the code, I don’t think (going by memory) there are any published allowable stresses for cross grain tension or bending for lumber. Would that be an indication that the code does not allow cross grain bending?

Thanks for the replies. To clarify, this is an interior bearing wall where the joists (TJIs) run over and bear on the nailer on the top of the cmu wall.
I know cross-grain bending is bad, but I’m just curious where in the code it says that it is outlawed in all cases. Again, all I can find is in reference to lateral anchorage for concrete/masonry walls to diaphragms.

If you hang the joist from the wall with top flange hangers and put Pa straps at bottom of joist max 4' o.c. that usually works assuming 12" deep joist min. to get coverage around strap in cmu wall.
