AbstractThis paper presents the results from an experimental study on the behaviour of gypsum board- protected, wood-stud shearwall assemblies. The experimental study consisted of fire resistance tests on 12 full-scale wall assemblies. The factors investigated included effects of placement and type of shear membrane, insulation type, presence of resilient channels and load intensity on the fire resistance of such assemblies. The test results will be used to develop a model for predicting the fire resistance of wood-stud wall assemblies.
