AbstractLaboratory studies are being carried out to determine the performance of various roof constructions of both conventional and trussed designs, under short time and relatively long-term loading. The results of investigations of a type of lightweight nailed W truss are now being presented. Tests carrried out to determine the effects of intermediate support such as might be provided by interior partitions are described in Part II of this report.
