Determining proper code applications for
designing for fire-resistance in wood-frame construction can be challenging.
This presentation is a primer for Structural Engineers and will include code
requirements, compliance options, and nuances related to fire-resistance rated
assemblies. Also, American Wood
Council’s National Design Specification® (NDS®) for Wood Construction Chapter
16 Fire Design of Wood Members will be discussed with design examples for
calculating fire-resistance for exposed wood members as well as the component
additive method for assemblies and flame-spread performance of wood products.
