Abstract
The report concludes with the recommendation that it would be useful to run an extensive set of cone calorimeter tests on SCL, glue-laminated timber and CLT products. The fundamental data could be most useful for validating models for predicting flame spread ratings of massive timber products and useful as input to comprehensive computer fire models that predict the course of fire in buildings. It is also argued that the cone calorimeter would be a useful tool in assessing fire performance during product development and for quality control purposes.

Abstract
Treatment options are needed to enhance the fire performance of thin structural members without generating additional char. This review explores potential opportunities for low-char fire retardant treatments and fire protective coatings for wood products, and briefly discusses the technical and code-based barriers to their adoption.

Abstract
It can be observed from this review that most fire safety provisions are similar in nature, whether the Chinese, Canadian or American provisions are applied. However, the Chinese code seems to be slightly more restrictive than the North American building codes with respect to wood-use allowances.

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
The key objective of this study was to evaluate the surface burning characteristics (flame spread rating) of glued-laminated timber (glulam) decking in accordance with CAN/ULC S102 test method [1]. This is part of a test series aimed at evaluating the flame spread rating of mass timber components, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and structural composite lumber (SCL). More specifically, this study is solely focused on mass timber assemblies that are thick enough to be treated theoretically as semi-infinite solids (thermally thick solids) as opposed to thermally-thin, which is typical of traditional combustible finish products. The tested specimen in this series meets the provisions related to “heavy timber construction”, per paragraph 3.1.4.7 of Division B of the National Building Code of Canada.

Abstract
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the fire-protection F- and T-ratings of selected fire stops and sealing joints in cross-laminated timber assemblies, in accordance with CAN/ULC S115 test method, “Standard Method of Fire-Tests of Firestop System”. Recommendations are given in this report with respect to proper detailing to ensure that the tested closure devices, when used in mass timber plate construction, will perform as expected. It is noted that test data is to date limited, and further testing may result in revision of these recommendations.
