Title of Internship Talk
Using Image Analysis to Quantify the Fire Performance of Penetrations in Cross-Laminated Timber
Oregon State University, Department of Wood Science & Engineering
Can Wood Structures Outperform Steel in a Fire?
Cross-laminated timber is an exciting new building material enabling innovative construction technology. Its safe application in tall buildings is often supported by cutting-edge research. The goal of this project is to develop a method to quantify the effect of penetrations on the charring of cross-laminated timber during a fire through analysis of images taken after completion of standard fire penetration tests. A program was created that can analyze images and effectively differentiate between the charring effects of various types of penetrations. This presentation explores the methods employed in the program and the project's results.
