Abstract:The main features of a construction system, know as the EAG System and developed to build from single housing units to multistory dwel-l ings, are described. This includes the fabrication of the basic construction elements, their assembling to form modules, the finishing operations at the factory and the erection at the construction site. The System structural pro-blems- are discussed, and a test program planned to answer some structural questions is far, and reviewed in some detail. The which cover the behavior of floor results of the tests panels in flexure performed so and shear, wall panels under lateral aspects of loads, diagonaI the flexural strength of panel braced frames, are presented.
