AbstractThis consortium research project produced a large amount of technical information and data in the areas of fire safety, acoustics and building envelope performance for use in mid-rise (and taller) wood buildings. The results of the acoustics and building envelope performance are summarized in separate reports [8, 9]. This report consolidates the results of fire research activities (thrusts 1-3) conducted under the project. These include investigation of the encapsulation approach to protect the combustible structural elements, development of wood-based generic exterior wall assemblies to limit exterior fire spread, and development of generic fire resistant light-weight wood-frame wall assemblies for applications in lower storeys of mid-rise wood buildings.
