"This report discusses the results, observations, and recommendations made following racking tests on three particleboard sheathed, timber framed wall panels 3 m long x 2.4 m high. The sheathings used were 3.8 mm, Hydroline, 4.8 mm Hydroline, and 5.5 mm special formula Fineline. The framing used in each test was 90 x 45 mm, F8 Radiata pine. Stud centres were 600 mm, and the nails 2.8 mm diameter x 40 mm long galvanised clouts, and the nail centres 150 mm on edges and 300 mm centres on interval studs. All tests were of short duration and conducted under laboratory conditions in the Heavy Structures Laboratory, Department of Civil Engineering, CIAE."--P. (i)
