Abstract : A pole-type building was erected at the Forest Products Laboratory to meet major research objectives as well as shelter a long-term load test of wood trussed rafters. This first report details the increase in rigidity that resulted from addition of each component. It also gives an initial evaluation of the trussed rafters used in the structure, including adequacy of materials and methods of attachment for gusset plates. (Author)
