Harrison Wall, MEng graduate from the Fire Safety Engineering program at The University of Queensland, was awarded the FWPA travel award to attend the 2018 World Conference on Timber Engineering (WCTE) to be held on August 20-23 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. The award was made on the basis of his research thesis on the study of the fire performance for a prototype timber-FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) floor system. This study was part of a Future Timber Hub project looking at “Long-span floor timber systems and the potential for improved fire performance”.
The WCTE is the most prestigious international event in timber engineering, engineered wood products and design of timber structures. The conference attracts researchers, engineers and architects, code consultants and building officials, contractors and project managers, fabricators and suppliers from all around the world.
