Abstract
The objective of this research is to evaluate CLT face-bonded with adhesives that meet the new 2018 ANSI/APA PRG 320 with respect to elevated temperature requirements and their effects on the resulting charring rates when exposed to the standard time-temperature curve of CAN/ULC S101 (similar exposure to ASTM E119)...

Abstract
It is not possible or practical to precisely predict the vertical movement of wood structures due to the many factors involved in construction. It is, however, possible to obtain a good estimate of the vertical movement to avoid structural, serviceabilit...
