AbstractThis paper presents the results of a number of full-scale fire resistance tests conducted in accordance with the CAN/ULC-S101 standard on wall and floor systems. It describes the effects of a number of design parameters on the fire resistance performance of assemblies including: attachment of the gypsum board, insulation type, resilient channels, gypsum board thickness, number of gypsum board layers, stud arrangements, type of framing, resilient channel and framing spacing, sub-floor type and structural load. The paper also describes how the information gathered from this study will help in the selection of suitable assemblies and the models that have been developed to predict the fire resistance of lightweight assemblies.
