This report is part of an effort to establish research priorities for structural performance of light-frame residential construction and it can be considered a part of the overall PATH Roadmapping effort. In July 2001, representatives from universities, trade associations, product manufacturers, and the government met to identify critical R&D needs for structural performance of light-frame residential construction. This report is a result of that one-day workshop, providing a view of how future R&D efforts in this area (both public and private sector efforts) can support the goals of the PATH program.
