Abstract : The objective of this program is to study the loading and structural response of wall panels. This report describes technical progress and reports many test results. Correlations between theory and test results for panel failure phenomena are presented and discussed. Also provided are appendices on concurrent static test programs and tests of OCD shelter ventilation equipment. The emphasis to date has been on nonreinforced brick wall panels and timber stud walls.
