The 5th Pacific Timber Engineering Conference (PTEC) aims to provide a forum for industry and both young and experienced academics, practitioners, researchers, and research students in the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere in the world, to share the latest developments in research and application of timber in construction. UQ Fire attended in mass, represented by the following speakers:
Aidon Browning (Holmes Fire L.P)
The Effect of Fuel Load Nature on the Self-Extinction of Mass Timber
Juan I. Cuevas
Challenges in the use of Bench-Scale Fire Testing as a Design Tool
Self-Extinguishment of Cross-Laminated Timber in the Context of Compartment Fires
Mechanical response of engineered bamboo at elevated temperatures
Gabrielle K. Hodge (supervised by Joe Gattas)
Computational design of glued laminated timber trusses: a comparison of Australian Standard and Eurocode fire safety design implementations.
Effect of Grain Orientation on Heating and Charring of Laminated Bamboo Structures under Fire Conditions
Samia Razzaque (Permax Australia)
Intumescent Coatings on Timber – Exploring what is it actually doing?
Exploring the self-extinguishment mechanism of engineered timber in full-scale compartment fires: Design of Full-Scale Experiments and Preliminary Results
