Abstract
The key objective of this study is to analyze full-scale fire-resistance tests conducted on structural composite lumber (SCL), namely laminated veneer lumber (LVL), parallel strand lumber (PSL) and laminated strand lumber (LSL). A sub-objective is to evaluate the encapsulation performance of Type X gypsum board directly applied to SCL beams and its contribution to fire-resistance of wood elements. The test data is being used to further support the applicability of the newly developed Canadian calculation method for mass timber elements, recently implemented as Annex B of CSA O86-14.

Abstract
The present work aims at evaluating the combustibility characteristics (i.e. reaction to fire) of structural composite lumber (SCL) when tested in compliance with the cone calorimeter standard ISO 5660 [7, 8, 9]. More precisely, this study evaluates the heat release rate, total heat release, mass loss, effective heat of combustion, smoke obscuration as well as the presence of toxic gases when SCL products are tested in conformance with ISO 5660. Moreover, this study is solely focused on SCL elements that are thick enough to act as semi-infinite solids (thermally thick solids), as opposed to typical thin combustible finish products. Tests data are also compared to those obtained for visually-graded solid wood specimens of the SPF species group.

Abstract
Hardwood flour was biologically converted with 3 fungal species, and ammonium lignosulfonate was biologically modified with 3 enzyme cocktails. Ten types of panels were made of bio-modified or unmodified wood flour and ammonium lignosulfonate. All panels were manufactured at target density (850 kg/m3), temperature (220°C), pressure (300 psi) and pressing time (220 sec) without any resin and additives. Among all formulations, the biomaterials, consisted of bio-modified hardwood flour by the fungal specie 332A, or bio-modified ammonium lignosulfonate by enzymes extracted from 76A and 329A, were most effective and showed significantly higher internal bonding (IB) strengths. Further investigation of the bio-modification of the kraft lignin for bio-composites is conducted in 2013-2014 financial year (ongoing) and will be reported in 2013-2014.

Abstract
These tests were performed to support the approval and construction of a tall wood building in Quebec City (13-storey). While a calculation methodology is provided in Chapter 8 (Fire) of the CLT Handbook [3], the Association des Chefs en Sécurité Incendie du Québec (ACSIQ), the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) and other stakeholders requested these tests be performed so that they could witness the actual fire performance of the specified assemblies. As such, the main objective was to demonstrate at least a 2 h FRR of the CLT assemblies, which is the minimum required rating as prescribed by the National Building Code of Canada [4] for structural elements and fire separation walls of exit stair ways and elevators shafts in tall buildings (greater than 6 storeys). Numerous representatives from Quebec and Ontario were present for either one or both days of testing, including RBQ, the Cities of Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec City as well as fire services personnel from Montreal, Ottawa and Gatineau. FPInnovations, Nordic, the Canadian Wood Council (CWC), and CHM fire consultants were also in attendance.

Abstract
Fire tests on a double egress fire door installed in two Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) wall panels were conducted. The purpose of the testing was to identify design consideration for detailing the interface between a 90 min. listed door assembly and a CLT wall with a 2-hr fire resistance.

Abstract
Fire tests on two unprotected 5-ply Cross Laminated Tmber (CLT) floors with pipe penetrations were conducted. The purpose of the testing was to evaluate concepts for detailing metallic and plastic pipe penetration firestops. Although the focus was on flame through performance, some temperature data was collected on insulated and uninsulated metallic pipes.
