Fire Design of Engineered Wood Structures
Fire Design of Engineered Wood Structures


This webinar will cover fire design models from the existing Eurocode 5, and the improved design models proposed for the new version of Eurocode 5 will be presented.

The design of glulam, LVL and cross-laminated timber for standard fire will all be presented. Protection provided by gypsum plasterboards will be covered as will the new design model for I-joists and the effect of adhesives on wood structures.
