Wood-wool cement composite panel (WWCP) is a wood based product which produced by mixing the wood-wool strand with Portland cement paste and bonded together under pressure to form a panet. In Malaysia, the application of WWCP as a wall system in building construction is still new and thus' the structural behaviour and the installation technique of this composite wall is still not well established' Therefore, in this study two types of installation techniques denoted as Wl and W2 have been considered in the fabrication of 600 mm x 600 mm wallettes and tested under diagonal compression load in accordance to ASTM E 519-02. For Wl' 100 mm thickness of WWCP have been used and cut into 300 mm width and 600 rnm length and stacked vertically in two layers' The top artd bottom panels were connected together with l0 mm thick mofiar paste and three vefiical steel bars were inserted between panels' To increase the stability of panel joint, two U-Nails were clan-rped on each side of joints' For W2, a new panel arrangement techniclue has been proposed by cross laminating tu'o layers of 50 mm thickness of WWCP' The fiont side of the panels has been arranged in the longitudinal direction. whereas back side in transverse direction' The fiont and back side panels were bonded together rrsing either adhesive or mortar rnix with different thicknesses to tbrm approxitnately 100 mrn (+ 15 nlrn) thick wallettes. The results indicated that. the wallettes W2 which bonded with 15 mm thick mortar mix shows a highest diagonal loading capacity compared to all tested wallettes.
