Hi' all,

I'm trying to find out the maximum load bearing caperbility of a timber stud wall made up as follows:
12.5mm plasterboard
18mm plywood
114x38mm timber studs @ 600mm ctrs
8mm OSB.

As Woodster says. And then some.

To do it accurately, is it internal/external? Taking wind load? If so, how much? Noggin spacing?

Why OSB and 18 ply btw?

It part of a off-site modular corridor link between two buildings The wall in question will become a partition between the corridor and a new extension, so wind loads do not figure.
The wall itself is approxmatley 3m tall.
The reason for the 18mm ply and 9mm OSB is to deter attempts to escape this building is situated in a low risk prison.
Also the 18mm Ply and OSB remove the need for noggins.

A prison with timber walls?

Don't forget the rice paper doors and rubber bars for the windows
