About Course

Determining proper code applications for designing for fire-resistance in wood-frame construction can be challenging. This presentation will include code requirements, compliance options, and nuances related to fire-resistance rated assemblies, fire design of exposed wood members, and flame-spread performance of wood products.  Included will be design examples for calculating fire-resistance for exposed wood members and the component additive method for assemblies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Apply approved methods and alternatives for establishing the fire-resistance of wood building elements
  2. Identify some distinguishing characteristics of fire-resistance rated exterior walls, fire walls, fire barriers, and fire partitions.
  3. Describe the basic fire-resistance design procedures for wood frame assemblies and certain exposed wood members
  4. Identify code requirements for flame spread performance of wood products.

Funding provided in part by the Softwood Lumber Board.
