BCD220 – Fire Resistance Design for Wood Construction


PDF YouTube SelfStudy Subjects

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:

Upon completion, participants will be better able to:

  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. Understand the basic fire-resistance design procedures for wood frame assemblies and certain exposed wood members.
  4. Understand code requirements for flame spread performance of wood products.
