Michelle Kam-Biron, American Wood Council will be presenting 4 topics on Friday, January 17:


Code Applications for Nail-Laminated, Glued-Laminated, and Cross-Laminated Timber

This presentation will focus on nail-laminated timber (NLT), glued-laminated timber (GLT), and cross-laminated timber (CLT) structural framing members. Structural and fire protection characteristics of NLT, GLT, and CLT will be discussed, as well as IBC code provisions that allow their specification in both residential and commercial applications for a wide variety of occupancies.
This course has been approved for 1.75 State of Minnesota CEs: Building Officials

Fire-Resistance Design Primer for Mass Timber Construction

This presentation examines how fire resistance ratings in the 2015 International Building Code (IBC) apply to mass timber and heavy timber construction. Topics include how the IBC incorporates fire testing and calculation methods to quantify fire resistance as well as how various materials, including wood, behave when exposed to high temperatures in fires. Discussion will include code-compliant calculation methods for fire resistance ratings of wood frame assemblies and for wood members exposed to fire per the 2015 National Design Specification® (NDS®) for Wood Construction Chapter 16.

Cornucopia of Classic Connection Conundrums

The American Wood Council’s (AWC) National Design Specification® (NDS®) for Wood Construction and Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS) are documents referenced in US building codes and used to design wood structures worldwide. Based on numerous help desk questions and feedback from design professionals, AWC has identified some of the most commonly overlooked wood connection engineering requirements from the NDS and SDPWS.

Fire-Resistance Design for Wood Construction

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 nuance 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.
