Abstract
La construction massive en bois est relativement nouvelle et sera bientôt intégrée dans le Code national du bâtiment du Canada (CNB). Il s'agit d'une solution à base de bois à prix compétitif qui complète les systèmes existants à ossature en bois et de construction en gros bois d’œuvre et constitue une option appropriée pour certaines applications qui utilisent actuellement du béton, de la maçonnerie ou de l'acier.

Abstract
Mass timber construction is a relatively new type of construction soon to be implemented in the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC). It is a cost-competitive wood-based solution that complements existing wood-frame and heavy timber systems and is a suitable candidate for some applications which currently use concrete, masonry and/or steel.

Abstract
The design of wood-frame structural systems to withstand exposure to fire depends on knowledge of the fire endurance (time-to-failure) of the wood members used in the system. In fires, wood looses part of its load-carrying capacity due to charring and part due to strength degradation. This thesis examines the reduction in compression strength experienced by dimension lumber when exposed to elevated temperatures. A program of experimental testing of nominal 2×4 Machine Stress Rated (MSR) lodgepole pine lumber concentrically loaded in compression and exposed to elevated temperature was undertaken by Forintek Canada Corp., Canada's wood products research institute. A computer program entitled HTExposure was written to simulate the experimental time-to-failure data gathered in Forintek's testing program. This computer program combines a modification of an existing heat-transfer model with various published compression-strength reduction models. This was done in order to determine which of those strength-reduction models could predict times-to-failure comparable to the observed values. As well, a new compression-strength reduction model was proposed. When predicted results were compared to the observed data, it was determined that the computer program predicted results closest to those observed when using the new compression-strength reduction model proposed in this study.

Abstract
WoodST is capable of calculating heat transfer, charring rate, load-displacement curve as well as the time and mode of failure of timber structures exposed to fire, thus providing a cost-competitive solution for the fire safety analysis of timber structures. This InfoNote briefly introduces the development and verification of WoodST. Two applications of WoodST are also demonstrated.

Abstract
WoodST est capable de calculer le transfert de chaleur, la vitesse de carbonisation, la courbe charge-déplacement ainsi que le moment et le mode de défaillance des structures en bois exposées au feu, offrant ainsi une solution à coût compétitif pour l'analyse de la sécurité incendie des ossatures en bois. La présente note d’information présente brièvement le développement et la vérification de WoodST. Deux applications de WoodST sont également présentées.
