I am a researcher and will be developing a plan to conduct tests on wall panels and systems over the next several years. We plan to test standard and non-standard construction techniques as well as new materials. Along the way we will test fastner spacing, types of fasteners, SIPS, etc…
My question for the group is this: What do you think are the gaps in knowledge among the building and inspection community that we should explore?
Thanks for thinking about this topic and offering your comments.
