Wood as An Engineering Material - Fire Safety of Wood Construction

COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wood as An Engineering Material - Fire Safety of Wood Construction
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides an overview of wood as an engineering material, and its behavior and characteristics in fire safety during construction.

Fire safety is an important concern in all types of construction. The high level of national concern for fire safety is reflected in limitations and design requirements in building codes. These code requirements and related fire performance data are discussed in the context of fire safety design and evaluation in the initial section of this presentation.

Because basic data on fire behavior of wood products are needed to evaluate fire safety for wood construction, the second major section of this presentation provides additional information on fire behavior and fire performance characteristics of wood products. This presentation concludes with a discussion of fire-retardant treatments that can be used to reduce the combustibility of wood.

This 2 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to designers, architects, and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better overview of wood as an engineering material.
