    Gypsum wallboard is the most common interior wall sheathing material used in residential construction. Due to the brittle nature of its core material and its low stiffness and strength relative to that of wood-base panel materials, however, gypsum wallboard is rarely recognized for any structural contribution to the integrity of light-frame buildings
