Abstract
In the construction of buildings, the timber-concrete (TCC) system can be a cost-competitive solution for floors with longer spans, since the mechanical properties of the two materials are used efficiently. Furthermore, the additional mass from the concrete improves the acoustic performance compared to a timber floor system alone. Nevertheless, TCC floors are not commonly used in buildings in Canada, due to the absence of technical guidelines for such types of structural systems in this country.

Abstract
This guide provides detailed information on solid woody biofuels that are available in Ontario and the combustion systems that can burn these biofuels. The four types of solid woody biofuels considered in this guide are cordwood (firewood), wood chips, wood briquettes, and wood pellets. The three types of combustion systems are stoves, furnaces, and boilers. The major considerations for sourcing and using each type of biofuel and combustion system for institutional / commercial and residential applications are outlined in this guide.

Ce guide donne de l'information détaillée sur les biocombustibles solides qui sont disponibles en Ontario et sur les systèmes de combustion qui peuvent brûler ces biocombustibles. Les quatre types de biocombustibles solides dont il est question dans ce guide sont le bois de chauffage, les copeaux de bois, les briquettes de bois et les granules de bois. Les trois types de systèmes de combustion sont les poêles, les générateurs d'air chaud et les chadières. Ce guide présente les principales considérations en ce qui concerne l'approvisionnement et l'utilisation de chaque type de biocombustible et système de combustion pour les applications instituttionnelles/commerciales et résidentielles.

Abstract
This guide was developed by FPInnovations and its partners to assist in the design and construction of durable and energy-efficient wood-frame buildings in Alberta. The Province adopted the National Energy Code for Buildings 2011, as of November 1, 2016, in order to comply with the energy-efficiency requirements for large buildings (Part 3). It is now also possible, with new building regulations, to build wood structures with a maximum of six storeys or 18 m height in Alberta. This guide aims to provide solutions for the building envelope (enclosure) of Part 3 wood buildings, particularly five- and six-storey wood-frame buildings, to meet the prescriptive thermal requirements of the new energy code. A range of wood-based exterior wall and roof assemblies are covered, based on light wood frame or mass timber, and various thermal insulation materials are discussed. Effective R-values are calculated based on typical thermal insulation values of commonly used materials. This document also covers key considerations for building envelope design to maintain long-term durability in Alberta’s varied climate.

Abstract
To support the implementation of biomass procurement practices, a formal, rigorous, consistent, science-based biomass quality control (QC) program is needed. This program should be designed to determine customer needs, the sources of product variation, and ways of eliminating or minimizing product variation as soon as it occurs. The program should also include a well-designed QC plan and sampling protocol, statistical process control methodologies and tools, formal QC teams, and regular training. This report describes various statistical QC tools and demonstrates those using examples of biomass moisture content data. These tools can be developed in-house or be purchased, but their integration with existing databases (e.g., LIMS) is recommended. FPInnovations experts can assist in developing customized QC programs for companies and for specific biomass products, and can train QC teams to develop and use the tools presented here.

Abstract
Since 2000, all tractors and trailers manufactured in Canada are required to have anti-lock braking system (ABS). It is difficult to keep these systems operational in off-highway applications such as log-hauling. The most frequent issues with these systems involve wheel-speed sensors and wiring. This guide provides a brief overview of these issues and recommends best practices for maintaining these systems.

Il est difficile de garder ces systèmes en fonction dans les applications ailleurs que sur les autoroutes, comme le transport de billes. Parmi les problèmes les plus fréquemment éprouvés avec ces systèmes, on trouve les capteurs de vitesse des roues et le câblage. Ce guide fournit un aperçu de ces problèmes et recommande des pratiques exemplaires pour l'entretien de ces systèmes.

Abstract
Depuis quelques années, le revêtement en bois massif a retrouvé ses lettres de noblesse après avoir cédé des parts de marché aux revêtements synthétiques. Ce gain de popularité s’explique notamment par les nombreuses améliorations apportées par les manufacturiers à leur gamme de revêtements, et ce, tant pour ce qui est du moulurage de leurs profilés que de la durabilité de la teinture appliquée en guise de finition, en passant par un rehaussement significatif de la qualité de la fibre utilisée.

Abstract
La coupe de jardinage 1-2-3 a d’abord été conçue comme solution sylvicole pratique et peu coûteuse pour une gestion efficace de peuplements résineux. À cause de l’historique de perturbations dans la plupart des forêts feuillues, plusieurs peuplements candidats n’ont pas la structure souhaitée entre les cohortes pour appliquer un traitement de jardinage conventionnel. L’approche Jardinage 1-2-3 propose une alternative qui peut être envisagée dans ces peuplements à structure débalancée. Dans le cadre des travaux de FPInnovations, des essais opérationnels ont été réalisés dans des peuplements à prédominance feuillue pour mesurer l’efficacité de la méthode 1-2-3 dans de telles conditions. Lors du déploiement opérationnel, les paramètres tels que le réseau de sentiers, le taux de prélèvement et la gestion de la vigueur des tiges furent respectés. La performance de l’opérateur de l’abatteuse était bonne au cours des essais, autant pour la productivité en termes de tiges ou de m³ récoltés par HMP. Bien que seule une mise en application à grande échelle puisse réellement en révéler le plein potentiel, les résultats de ces essais permettent de croire que la méthode de jardinage 1-2-3 convient bien à la récolte de forêts feuillues dont la structure ne se prête pas bien aux approches jardinatoires habituelles.

The focus of this guide is on the planning, construction, and maintenance practices for resource roads that cross wetlands. Poor bearing capacity soils and an abundance of water are characteristic of wetlands. This guide focuses on two primary issues: 1. Ensuring that resource roads that cross wetlands function at the required design and performance levels to allow forest access and hauling operations in a cost-effective manner; 2. Reducing the impacts of resource roads on the flow characteristics of wetlands. This guide involves FPInnovations and Ducks Unlimited Canada.

The Saskatchewan Forest Products Buyers’ Guide provides key information about Saskatchewan forest products to buyers around the world. Saskatchewan has one of the most competitive business climates in North America. Our economy is strong and growing, including the forestry sector which is poised for growth and well positioned to meet increased global demand for forest products. The province of Saskatchewan is located in western Canada. Boreal forest covers the entire northern half of the province, totalling 34 million hectares, most of which is owned by the Government of Saskatchewan. The Commercial Forest Zone covers nearly 12 million hectares, and is suitable for commercial timber harvesting operations. The current annual allowable cut (AAC) is 8.2 million cubic metres of timber (4.8 million m3 of coniferous trees and 3.4 million m3 of deciduous trees). http://publications.gov.sk.ca/details.cfm?p=80471

Abstract
This guide explores how the building industry in British Columbia can meet the challenges of reducing energy use in buildings, in part by effectively accounting for the impact of thermal bridging. Most practitioners will find PART1 and Appendices A and B to be most useful. PART 1 outlines how to effectively account for thermal bridging. Appendices A and B provide a catalog of common building envelope assemblies and interface details, and their associated thermal performance data. Researchers and regulators will be interested in PART 2 and PART 3, and Appendices C to E. They contain the cost-benefit analysis, and discussion on significance and further insights, of using this guide to mitigate thermal bridging in buildings.
