mass timber; fire dynamic; fire performance; large scale fire test
The Mass Timber Demonstration Fire Test Program (MTDFTP) included two series of experiments: the pilot scale demonstration tests in summer 2021 in Richmond, BC and the large scale fire tests in summer 2022 in Ottawa, ON. This report documents the series of large scale fire tests on a mass timber structure conducted to study fire safety during construction, fire dynamics and performance in an open plan office space and residential suites, as well as influence of exposed mass timber structural members on fire severity and duration.
