Title:Studies of Roof Panelization
Author(s):Jones, Rudard A.; Percival, Donald H.
Abstract:A number of roofing systems for a four foot long section of a typical 24 foot sprun house were examined and compared to truss construction as is generally used at the present time. The present system of roof truss construction remains the least costly when a clear span flat ceiling is desired. Stress skin panels offer some possibility for flat roofs, or for those cases in which a sloping ceiling is desired. The need for the development of a combined roofingsheathing material capable of carrying loads for spans of 4 to 8 feet is stated. The need for a ceiling material capable of spanning distances greater than 2 feet is stated.
