Abstract
Building high energy efficiency has become a must to reduce carbon emission from the built environment and to meet needs of consumers. Industrialized construction provides an effective way to produce highly insulated and airtight building envelopes to achieve superior building performance, such as Net Zero Energy. However, it is important that as other attributes (e.g., seismic, wind, fire, vibration, etc.) are being addressed, further research is needed to develop well rounded building envelope solutions. Meanwhile, improvement may be made in automated production equipment and software to optimize and monetize these solutions.

Abstract
Il est devenu indispensable de construire des bâtiments à haute efficacité énergétique pour réduire les émissions de carbone dans l’environnement et répondre aux besoins des consommateurs. La construction industrialisée est un bon moyen de produire des enveloppes de bâtiment bien isolées et étanches à l’air et, par le fait même, d’accroître la performance énergétique des bâtiments (p. ex consommation énergétique nette zéro). Cependant, il est important de tenir compte d’autres attributs (p. ex. charges sismiques, vent, feu, vibrations, etc.). Il faudra poursuivre les recherches pour trouver des solutions durables en matière d’enveloppes de bâtiment. Entre-temps, il est possible d’améliorer l’équipement de production automatisée et le logiciel qui l’accompagne afin d’optimiser et de rentabiliser ces solutions.

Abstract
Deep energy retrofitting of existing buildings has become critically important to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions from the built environment. It will also conserve older buildings and make them more comfortable, durable, and climate resilient. One of the most effective approaches is exterior retrofitting through adding prefabricated insulative panels to the exterior walls and roofs to improve a building envelope’s thermal performance. Such activities could provide a sizable market for wood-based systems, particularly for retrofitting the housing stock of older low-rise wood-frame buildings in Canada and the United States. This document aims to keep the Canadian wood industry and prefabrication providers abreast of this potential market by providing a brief overview about the background, technical solutions, and potential barriers of such retrofitting.

Abstract
Des améliorations écoénergétiques en profondeur de bâtiments existants sont maintenant d’une importance capitale pour la réduction de la consommation d’énergie et des émissions de carbone provenant de l’environnement bâti. Elles permettront aussi de conserver des bâtiments plus longtemps et de les rendre plus confortables, plus durables et résilients aux phénomènes climatiques. La rénovation extérieure, qui consiste à ajouter des panneaux isolants préfabriqués aux murs extérieurs et aux toitures en vue d’améliorer le rendement thermique de l’enveloppe du bâtiment, constitue l’une des approches les plus efficaces. Ces activités pourraient représenter un marché important pour les systèmes à base de bois, notamment pour la rénovation du parc immobilier se composant de bâtiments à ossature de bois de faible hauteur plus vieux au Canada et aux États-Unis. Le présent document vise à permettre à l’industrie canadienne du bois et aux fournisseurs de panneaux préfabriqués de se tenir au fait de ce marché potentiel en leur présentant un bref survol du contexte, des solutions techniques et des obstacles éventuels de ces rénovations.

Abstract
Wide-base single tires are receiving renewed interest in the forest transport sector due to their inability to capture rock, as happens with dual tires, which can improve road user safety. Potential fuel efficiency gains are also attractive and, in support of this, the fuel consumption of a 9-axle tridem drive B-train truck was measured relative to a control truck under the following conditions: baseline, wide-base single tires on truck and trailer, and wide-base single tires on trailer only. The fuel consumption differences were insignificant, but the reductions in tare weight were significant. The tare reduction can be best used to carry more payload and increase revenue. Other potential benefits of wide-base tires are related to improvement of vehicle, operator, and public safety. Recommendations for implementation and economics of fitting wide-base single tires are discussed.

Abstract
Les pneus simples à bande large suscitent un intérêt renouvelé dans le secteur du transport forestier en raison de leur capacité à ne pas retenir les cailloux, contrairement aux pneus jumelés, ce qui peut améliorer la sécurité des usagers de la route. Les gains potentiels en efficacité du carburant peuvent aussi être attrayants et c’est pourquoi nous avons comparé la consommation de carburant d’un train double de type B à 9 essieux à celle d’un camion témoin dans les conditions suivantes : référence, pneus simples à bande large sur le camion et les remorques et pneus simples à bande large sur les remorques seulement. Les différences de consommation de carburant n’étaient pas significatives, cependant la diminution du poids à vide l’était. Cette réduction permet de transporter plus de charge utile et ainsi accroître les revenus. D’autres avantages possibles de ces pneus concernent l’amélioration de la sécurité du véhicule, du conducteur et de la population. On discute de recommandations quant à la mise en application et aux aspects économiques de l’installation de pneus simples à bande large.

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.
