AbstractA series of impact and concentrated load tests were carried out in order to evaluate the strength of some of the more common interior wall coverings used in Canadian houses. These tests, which were done generally according to ASTM Standard Test Method E72-55, simulate the kind of forces that an interior wall covering might be expected to receive in service. The purpose of these tests was to provide information to serve as a basis for comparison when evaluating possible new wall coverings.
