I am working with a precast block wall that is going to have vertical cells cast in to allow rebar. The rebar is going to be cast into a foundation below and the blocks will be slipped over the bars and stacked to form a wall. The cells are going to be filled with non-structural fill and the rebar will have a cap plate and nut at the top of the wall. My question is, if I design the cap plate and nut for the tensile capacity of the bar, can I say that shear friction is used to resist the in-plane shear loads of the wall? I essentially plan to "develop" the bar using this cap plate & nut instead of it being traditionally developed in concrete or grout, is this valid?
Our client tends to prefer options that make it more difficult on the structural side of things which lead to the unusual conditions described above, any input would be appreciated!

Among the challenges in the design flow has been aligning the metrics for design-for-test and for functional safety. This paper describes using logic built-in-self-test as both a functional safety mechanism and as a part of in-system testing, which allows for alignment of metrics required for safety certifications.
