Abstract
The combustibility of timber is one of the factors that restrict the use of structural elements of wood in buildings in Brazil. This paper describes an experimental investigation of the charring rate of wood species. The charring rate is one of the key parameters for the design of load bearing timber structures. The purpose of this study is...

Abstract
Almost half of Brazil's area is forest. Technologically manipulated and protected from natural disasters caused by fire, insects and diseases, forests will last forever. As older trees are removed, they are replaced by new trees to replenish the wood supply for future generations. The regeneration cycle, or support field, can easily overcome the...
