Abstract
The objective of this research is to address a knowledge gap related to fire performance of midply shear walls. Testing has already been done to establish the structural performance of these assemblies. To ensure their safe implementation and their broad acceptance, this project will establish fire resistance ratings for midply shear walls. Fire tests will provide information for the development of design considerations for midply shear walls and confirm that they can achieve at least 1-hour fire-resistance ratings that are required for use in mid-rise buildings.
This research will support greater adoption of mid-rise residential and non-residential wood-frame construction and improve competition with similar buildings of noncombustible construction. This work will also support the development of the APA system report for midply walls, which will be a design guideline for using midply walls in North America.

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
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.
