    Pick up some Simpson Catalogs on shear wall bracing. Also, I’d Google foundation shear wall bracing as there’s loads of info on the internet such as; Earthquake Retrofitting, Foundation Bolting and Cripple Wall Bracing | Earthquake Safety.

    Pretty good website. Good basic information. I particularly liked the rusty bolt segment.

    Mathew:

    Shear wall or braced line wall construction is often specifically engineered for a project. When it is, refer to the construction documents for the engineer's recommendations. Otherwise refer to IRC R602.10.
