Static and dynamic load response test results for a low profile, timber framed, plywood sheathed floor system suitable for use in conventional dwelling construction are presented. These results are compared to those obtained for a standard bearer/joist floor having similar material of construction and identical geometric layout. This work constitutes the first stage in the development of an engineered whole house designed to economically and efficiently resist forces produced by high winds.
