    Abstract

    Some years ago the U. S. Forest Products Laboratory pioneered in the use of stressed-cover panels for walls, roofs, and floors of prefabricated houses. Basically, a stressed-cover panel consists of an inner structural framework with a facing glued to each side to form what is virtually a box girder.
