An assembly of simple precast bv bolts and welded inserts. panels connected proves the structural framing of a single-story gable-roof. building, suitable for many uses. The panels are ribbed, consisting of a thin slab and peripheral, stiffening members. Arranged for 4-ft modular framing, two pairs of panels-one pair placed in the roof and the other in the sidewalls-compose a building segment 4 ft wide. Framing arrangement, design, assembly, and jointing are discussed. I f n ormation is also given on strength tests and service behavior of an experimental building built of these panels.
