Abstract
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD) has asked FPInnovations to investigate current information and knowledge for bridge fire impact mitigation opportunities and strategies. The extent of the investigation includes reaching out to domestic and international contacts to find directly applicable information and literature on strategies to mitigate fire impacts to bridge structures. This will include review of academic journals and reports, products and methods, to find

Abstract
Currently, mass timber building designs commonly incorporate a concrete floor topping. This can improve building accoustics by increasing the mass of the assembly, reduce floor vibration and create a smooth flat surface to install finish flooring on. The installation of concrete requires formwork, pouring and finishing the concrete and time to cure which adds to project schedules. One way to address this is to use mass timber elements that are prefabricated with concrete toppings preinstalled. Replaceing the concrete floor toppings wiht dry alternatives, such as cement board, may also reduce construction timelines, while still ensuring adequate acoustic and vibration performance. Cement board needs only to be screwed in place and can be walked on immediately after installation; this reduction in construction time may reduce overall project costs and help make wood buildings more cost competitive than other types of construction.

Abstract
The current study aims at evaluating the integrity failure (i.e. passage of hot gases or flames through the assembly) of CLT assemblies connected together using four types of commonly used panel-to-panel joints when exposed to the standard CAN/ULC S101 “Standard Method of Fire Endurance Tests of Building Construction Materials” [1] fire resistance time-temperature curve. The four types of joints include: 1) half-lapped, 2) internal spline, 3) single surface spline and 4) double surface splines. 301009649

Abstract
There is a need to evaluate TCC systems under fire conditions to understand how shear connectors will perform and might affect the fire performance and the composite action of the assembly. This project evaluates the fire performance of TCC assemblies based on their structural resistance, integrity and insulation when exposed to a standard fire, as well as how mass timber and concrete interact. This study involves full-scale fire resistance tests on composite wood-concrete floors using two types of shear connectors. 301009649

Abstract
These concealed or void space cases require installation of elements which represent additional material cost and labour. For wood buildings that rely heavily on prefabrication, these steps can have a significant impact on scheduling. Removing dependence on concrete and gypsum board in certain applications could make wood buildings more cost competitive to similar buildings of steel and concrete and could further enhance the benefits of prefabricated construction.

Abstract
In November 2014, the Department supported the conduct of a large-scale demonstration fire at the facilities of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The demonstration fire was carried out to support a high-rise building construction project in Quebec City. The aim was to demonstrate how a massive wooden structure could withstand severe fire exposure conditions of at least two hours. The structure consisted of a vertical shaft of massive timber construction designed for an exit elevator or staircase. The demonstration fire was carried out by a team made up of FPInnovations, Nordic Engineered Wood, GHL

Abstract
En novembre 2014, le Ministère soutenait la réalisation d’un incendie de démonstration à grande échelle effectué dans les installations du Conseil national de recherches du Canada (CNRC). L’incendie de démonstration a été réalisé afin d’appuyer un projet de construction d’un immeuble de grande hauteur à Québec. Le but était de démontrer la façon dont une structure massive en bois pouvait résister à des conditions sévères d’exposition au feu d’au moins deux heures. La structure consistait en une gaine verticale de construction massive en bois conçue pour un ascenseur ou un escalier de sortie. L’incendie de démonstration a été réalisé par une équipe composée de FPInnovations, Nordic Bois d’ingénierie, GHL Consultants, la firme Technorm et du CNRC.
