AbstractThis paper presents and discusses the results of 28 full-scale fire resistance test assemblies conducted in accordance with the ULC-S101 standard on wood joist, wood-I joist, steel C-joist and wood truss floor systems as part of the collaborative research program on the fire and acoustical performance of floor assemblies. Parameters investigated in this study include the effects of attachment of the gypsum board to resilient channels, insulation type, number of gypsum board layers, joist spacing, resilient channel spacing, sub-floor type and structural load on the fire resistance performance of floor assemblies. Temperatures throughout the systems and floor deflection were measured. Using these results, the effects of the above-mentioned parameters on the fire resistance performance of floor assemblies are discussed.
